Happy Chinese New Year!

新年快樂 (xīn nián kuài lè) – Happy New Year!

The tiger passes the new year to the rabbit.  All the best to everyone in this Chinese New Year!  In particular my good friends from my years in Taiwan – I think of you often and miss the island and her people.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a lion dance performed by the Jing Wo Martial Arts & Athletics Association of Canada.  They performed brilliantly, it was great fun to watch.  I hope to see them again soon.

Here are a couple images of the lions dancing.

    • Hi Bonnie,

      Thanks for your comment and visiting the blog.

      I lived in Taiwan for six years and feel a great affinity to the Chinese customs and traditions. The least I could do was put up a short post to welcome in the new year, particularly the auspicious rabbit.

      Cheers,

      Chris
