It's the year of the Metal, or Metallic Rabbit. Only comes around once every 60 years. I was born in 1951 and here it is, 60 years later, and I get to experience another Metallic Rabbit Year. Yep. Pretty dang special.

BTW, when I was growing up in San Francisco Chinatown, Chinese New Year was bigger than Christmas. WAY BIGGER. No 'dis' on Christmas, it's just how things were acknowledged in the Chinese -American community of San Francisco. So CNY is a biggie celebration in my repertoire. This year feels even more special to me, because it represents such a significant anniversary.

Chinese ('Lunar' if you wish to be more politically correct these days) kicks off today and festivities last for a solid two weeks plus two days this year.

Party on, folks. Eat good food. Visit with friends and relatives. And be kind to one another.

Gung Hay Fot Choy!

Happy New Year!

Nicest rabbit graphic I've seen, thus far. CNY is my favorite holiday(s), too. The only thing missing is 'caroling'. Maybe we can all do show tunes karaoke at our gatherings. lol
