"Bring all the joy of Chinese New Year to your family and friends with your own celebration. Create a festive and traditional atmosphere in your home or office with bright red lanterns and decorations. You can serve traditional foods and dishes to bring a happy and prosperous new year. Prepare a “Tray of Togetherness,” a round tray filled with candy and dried fruit. The following food served at Chinese New Year holds special significance:
o Tangerines and oranges represent prosperity o Noodles, long and uncut, symbolize longevity o Dumplings symbolize riches o A whole fish represents togetherness and abundance o A whole chicken represents completeness and prosperity..."
So I ate a few tangerines, a piece of chocolate and am now having a toasted baguette with camembert cheese. (Too tired to cook anything else, qand I don't eat meat or whole fish)
The title of this post is Happy New Year in Vietnamese.
I knit a little red pouch from the Rowan Ribbon twist that Tabbytuxedo sent me, and put 3 tangerines in it as a good luck symbol for one of my favorite managers, Kofi. He helped me out immmensely today and it made me want to cry because he is so helpful. Thank you Kofi.
