Happy New Year!

Today marks the beginning of festivities for the Lunar New Year, celebrated in many Asian countries. Canada's Chinese community is celebrating in a big way, with family get-togethers, parties and lavish meals. The festivities will continue for fifteen days.

Best wishes for good health and good fortune to everyone!

  1. Thank you for your good wishes for celebrating Chinese New Year. It will be full moon on the last day (15th) of the New Year festivities according to the Lunar calendar. It is also called Chinese Valentine's Day as many ancient Chinese love stories happened on that day. Very nice picture by Yee Wong. Best wishes to you and your family in the Year of the Rat. Kung Hei Fat Choy!
