Xin Nian Kuale!

Happy New Year! Today is the lunar new year, or Chinese new year. My parents were always non-traditional Chinese peeps so we didn't celebrate this holiday like many Asians do. I always want to have a party here with our H-town friends but it always creeps up on me. I guess it's too soon after our American holidays!

The other expression commonly used to wish Happy New Year in Chinese is Gongxi Facai (Gong hei fat choi {Cantonese}) but that actually translates into Congratulations and be prosperous. At any rate, I hope this proves to be a fabulous year!
