Getting Ready for Chinese New Year!
My Meez, Rasi-Shanti, dressed up to celebrate the Lunar New Year! (Rasi and Shanti are Sanskrit words meaning Good Luck and Peace respectively.)
Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year, is coming up soon! 2008 is the Year of the Rat. Chinese New Year is traditionally celebrated for 2 weeks from the second new moon of the year until the following full moon. Make sure to prepare for the celebration by doing the "spring cleaning". Then, begin your celebrating by lighting fire crackers, and making a lot of noise to scare off the evil spirits (energy). Open your windows and doors to make sure they leave your house!
Do you have any plans to bring in the Year of the Rat? Feel free to share!
