Happy Year of the Snake! 新年快樂!

Happy Year of the Snake! 新年快樂!

Today is the first day of the Chinese New Year. It is the Year of the Snake. I’m spending the Chinese New Year in the very non-traditional way of not meeting up with relatives 😛 I’ve already had my New Year’s Eve dinners with both sides of the family. Living in Canada, I don’t get special time off for Chinese New Year. Although this year, Chinese New Year coincides with newly created BC Family Day long weekend. So it’s more festive than usual, I guess. However, in Vancouver, it looks most of the Chinese New Year festivities are next weekend.

If I were in Hong Kong, I’d have 3 days off, or if I were in China, I’d have a whole week, to celebrate the New Year. Although, the Chinese New Year festivities can technically go on for an entire 2 weeks.

We’ll see if I end up going to any festivities. Things have been busy with school for the wifey.
