Best Wishes for the Lunar New Year
The year of the Water Dragon will dawn upon us in a few days.
Preparations are on the way. The Chinese have many traditions and customs, which, if I werent living with my Mother-in-law, I would probably not observe all of them.
New red clothes - check
New Pjs - check
Hair cut - check
Spring cleaning - more or less check
Goodies bought - check
New dollar notes changed - check
The Ang pows will be wrapped on the eve of the lunar new year by my hubby. The kids will have to be reminded that there must be no quarreling on that day. I will have to remind myself that I am not to be shouting at the children. No sweeping of floors on the fist day in the morning. All sharp items to be kept (which reminds me, better remember to remove all the tags from the new clothes and ensure all buttons are properly secured).
Looks like we are more or less set for the Chinese New Year. I only have to get ride of this nasty sore throat and stuffy nose and I will be all set.
Wishing you and yours a blessed Lunar New year, filled with lots of love, laughter, joy and feasting!
