We’ve  had a great time learning about Chinese New Year this past month.  It’s the biggest holiday I’ve seen yet over here.  Only the Muslim food stalls are open.  Everything else is closed.  The grocery store has been selling out of it’s stuff for days in preparation for being closed all day today.  And, the cleaning!  The Chinese families have been scrubbing and painting and just emptying their houses of junk.  It’s been amazing.  All for the new year.  I’ve posted some of the fun things we’ve gotten to do to enjoy the celebration in the previous two posts.  I hope you’ll enjoy them with your kids. 

Happy New Year!  Love, Sue, Dave, Ben and Nicky
