Happy Lunar New Year everyone! According to the Chinese zodiac, it is the Year of the Horse – which is my year.
And according to the general zodiac feels on the internet this year, people born in the year of the horse are going to have a bumpy ride, so they should lay low, don’t do anything too significant, but go to lots of parties.
Hell yes! I’m happy to go to parties!
We celebrated our Chinese New Year reunion dinner at my grandmother’s house – as we do every year. All 36 of us! And as always there was lots of food and fun times.
The kids had a blast with a game of soccer in the backyard, grass wrestling, bubbles, sparklers, food, fruits, cousins, Chinese cookies and of course, ang pows (red packets with money gifts)!
But what is different every year is how old the kids are. They react, and interact, a little bit differently each time we have this reunion. It really is a measure of how all our lives are ticking along.
We all had a fantastic time.
I love my family.
