Today is Chinese New Year!

Welcome to the New Year! I hope you have had a chance to clean your home, pay your debts, and resolve your differences.  On Chinese NY the elders give "lai see" or red packets ("fung bao" in Hakka) to the children of the family. These packets often contain money or chocolate coins.  They are used to symbolize good luck and ward off evil spirits.

Gung Hay Fat Choy! To you and your family...a proserous New Year!
