Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy New Year!

Today is the eve of one of the biggest holidays celebrated in our household: Chinese New Year!  On the eve we get together and wish our family and friends "Kung Hei Fat Choi!"  Which translated from Cantonese means "Congratulations and be prosperous!"  If we were living in Hong Kong this would be a 7 day holiday, but alas, it's back to work Monday, though it's great that New Years Day fell on a Sunday this year so we could enjoy it over the weekend. :)  So the house has been cleaned (to rid it of the old dirt of the old year), the food has been cooked and eaten, and family has come together to share this great holiday.

From my family to yours we wish you "Kung Hei Fat Choi! Congratulations and be prosperous!"  May you have a blessed and prosperous New Year.
