Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is celebrated on Feb 3 this year--and it is the year of the rabbit. My kids love that it is the year of the rabbit because the first night we spent in our new home we woke up to find a wild 'lucky' rabbit sitting at our back door....he was just looking up at us as if he was 'welcoming us into the neighborhood'!
One of the traditions of the Chinese New Year is to reconcile and forget all grudges and sincerely wish peace and happiness to everyone--which I love.
The new year is also celebrated with food and treats...which I really love!!
and another great Chinese New Year tradition is that every family thoroughly clean to wash away ill-fortune in hopes to make way for good upcoming luck---soo I better get cleaning!!
