Celebrate the Tiger

Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Saehae bok mani badeuseyo!

Chúc mừng năm mới!

Today is the Lunar New Year, the first day of the 2 week Spring Festival. Visit your family (but only on the second day), wear red, avoid taking out the trash (which is akin to washing away your luck and prosperity), definitely do not purchase any footwear (shoes (haai) sounds like losing and sighing in Cantonese), and by all means, (safely) celebrate with fireworks to scare away the monsters – particularly Nian, the Half Lion-Half Dragon Monster with sensitive ears!

Wishing you all a prosperous and happy 2022, Year of the Water Tiger.
