Happy Lunar New Year!

Gung Hey Fat Choy! Wishing you prosperity and happiness this new year and always!

Chinese New Year is also known as the Spring Festival (perfect, I love Spring!). Traditionally, Chinese New Year is a time for family reunions, big dinners, and lots of joy and celebration. It is rich in symbolism and well wishes for the new year.
