new years, the lunar way

January 28, 2014

Even though the Lunar New Year is still a few days away, my church had a special lunch in celebration of this important holiday this past Sunday. I love Lunar New Year because it’s a huge celebration steeped in tradition. It’s upsetting celebrating it here in the States though since you don’t get any time off beforehand to clean the house. Traditionally, it’s when kids got new clothes and new shoes for the year. I wish I had an opportunity to celebrate Lunar New Year in Taiwan … maybe one year! Oh well, I guess church lunch will have to do for now.
