I just love the weeks leading to the Lunar Chinese New Year. There is excitement in the air. I love seeing the red lanterns, the beautiful peonies, pussy willows, kumquats, mandarin oranges and the list goes on. I also enjoy listening to the Chinese New Year songs. When I was a kid, I looked (still do) forward to Chinese New Year. I couldn’t wait to wear my new clothes, get together with my relatives and receive ang pows. The excitement was like someone who has just received her diamond ring engagement. When I see the red lanterns and all things related to the Chinese New Year celebration, I get that warm fuzzy feeling of nostalgia. Loving that feeling.
Pretty lanterns in all shapes and sizes
