Happy Lunar New Year!

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

We’ve begun the Year of the Pig!

Every year I get excited about the largest holiday celebrated on Earth, Chinese New Year.

It begins on the first new moon of the year and continues on until (15 days later) that moon is full. The days between these two lunar happening each has a focus. Like the Birthday of Millet and the Day of Stone.

The final days are devoted to the creation of lanterns for the final event of the holiday, the lantern festival. So, as we welcome this huge full moon, millions of people will be dancing in the streets.

Isn’t that all great fun?

Good bye, kind Year of the Dog. Hello, you wonderful Golden Pig!

From what I’ve gathered, this year will bring us all fortune of many kinds. So, please find ways to enjoy good food and allow your body to do fun things.

“Gung Hay Fat Choy!” says my friend Lucy.

Happy New Year!
