It’s almost here!
Chinese New Year 2019!
Tuesday, February 5th begins the Year of the Pig
Not Chinese? Doesn’t matter. I like to have tacos on Cinco de Mayo but I’m not Hispanic. I love pierogies even though I’m not Polish. So, I like to celebrate Chinese New Year even though I’m not Chinese. And you can too.
Fireworks are set off at midnight on Chinese New Year’s Eve to “ward off monsters” and bad luck. Then are set off again in the morning to welcome the new year and good luck. I love fireworks!
You get to eat dumplings and/or spring rolls. Yum!
Lots of red decorations. I love the color of red 🙂
During the festival it is taboo to sweep or clean! Ha, a reason not to clean. What’s better than that? You don’t want to sweep away your good fortune.
