Happy Lunar New Year! This is the Year of the Ox. I’m still wondering why there is no year of the bear in the Chinese calendar. Hmm, that doesn’t seem right.
Anyways, I’ll look into that later! To celebrate, I am eating hot pot tonight.
Look at this delicious boiling hot pot of goodies, which include cabbage, fish balls, shrimp, corn, and assorted meats.
There are usually a lot of Lunar New Year festivities going on, such as watching a parade and dragon dance, but we did not do any of those this year. However, I did get a special treat for New Year.
Do you know what that was?
If you said “red envelope” or “hong bao”, you guessed it!
Every new year, humans give stuffies red envelopes with money inside. It’s good to be a stuffie, isn’t it?
Happy Lunar New Year! 新年快乐！
