Happy Chinese New Year!

Yes, today is Chinese New Year!

(My mom and I have always celebrated it, in some way; mainly because I was born in, and adopted from, Hefei, China.)

This year is the Year of the Rabbit.


I'd also like to make a note: my mom is a Rabbit, so I wish her much good fortune in this New Year. :)

Happy Chinese New Year! Maybe I should go to Panda Express, a Chinese restaurant across the street from where I live, and get lunch to bring home to celebrate.
Like I've ever really needed an excuse before.
Mmmmm-- Firecracker Chicken and Beijing Beef--I'm getting hungry.

Happy new year! I was in Taiwan two years ago for Chinese new year. It was so much fun. It mostly involved a lot of eating.
I loved the hot pot on new year's eve.

Madeleine said...

What fun! I'm the year of the cat (I know the lowest in the pecking order LOL!) Happy Chinese New Year. So what qualities does someone born in the year of the rabbit have? :O)

Happy New Year. :-)

The Golden Eagle said...

Summer: Thank you!

Shannon: Monkey, huh? Awesome!

Tere: Thanks!

No, I didn't--although the potstickers and orange chicken were very tasty. :)

Hannah: Thanks!

Well, it goes on for 15 days--you've got plenty of time to get them to everyone!

Holly: Thank you!

Shaynie: Thanks!

Donea: Cool. :)

Thank you!

Kindros: Thanks!

I'm a Capricorn, and a Rat--does that mean anything? :P

Lee: Thanks!

Sesame chicken's my favorite--along with egg/spring rolls and lo mein noodles.

Who needs an excuse to have Chinese food? :D

Angie: Thank you!

The Golden Eagle said...

Alex: Really? Well, now you know! :)

Ali: Thanks!

Brian: Thank you!

Aleta: Thanks!

Cool--I'll watch for it! :)

Michael: Thank you! :)

Nicole: Thanks!

Me, too.

Wendy: Thanks!


Jen: It certainly was for us! I hope you got to eat some Chinese food last night. :)

I wonder if there are any other snakes here?

Elaine: Thank you! :)

Old Kitty: LOL. :D

Nah, her ears are just the right size.

Same to you!

Susan: Thanks!

It's easy to forget--not something a lot of people think about (at least in this part of the world.)

Caroline: Thanks! :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Emily: I sure think so. :D

Thank you!

Talei: Yes, it is! :)

Jules: Thank you!

You can find out here if you want to.

Beth: Thanks!

Tricia: Thank you! :)

Vicki: Thanks!

Madeline: Really? Awesome--I'm the same!

Alison: That does sound like a lot of fun! :)

Madeleine: The Cat and the Rabbit are the same, aren't they? It's just a matter of translation.

According to Wikipedia, rabbits are: "Gracious, good friend, kind, sensitive, soft-spoken, amiable, elegant, reserved, cautious, artistic, thorough, tender, self-assured, shy, astute, compassionate, lucky, flexible. Can be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic, stubborn."

The "gracious, good friend, kind, elegant, astute, compassionate" part definitely applies to my mom. :)

Alison: Thank you!

I still have to do it myself--good for you on getting around to all the Crusaders!

The Golden Eagle said...

I didn't reply to you in order in the last comment by accident, so if you don't see yourself in the same order with the other commenters in my previous comment, check this one.

Misha: Thank you!

Pk: Thanks!

Madeleine: Nice to see you again! :)

Actually, it's my mom who's the Rabbit.

L. Diane: Thanks!

Nicole: Thank you! :)

W.B.: Thanks!

Margo: Thank you!

Heather: Yes, I was--I don't remember any of it, though. I was only 16 months when my mom adopted me and I came over to the USA.

Sharon: Thanks! :)

Maria: Thanks!


Hart: That's an interesting mix! :)


Orchid said...

Happy New Year! My mom and one of my sisters are also from the year of the rabbit (I can't recall what I am though). ^_^

Tony Benson said...

Happy New Year! Sorry I'm a bit tardy in replying, I've been away for a couple of days.

The Golden Eagle said...

Orchid: Thanks!

Two Rabbits? Cool. :)

Tony: Thank you!

No problem--I do that too. It can be nice to get away from the blogs for a time.
