#Griffyndor Festival! (also know as the #Chinese Spring Festival)

Chinese Spring Festival🐉 . . . when all of China turns into gryffindor 🦁 house and red and gold colors 🇨🇳 rule.

I think Walmart might be secretly connected to Chinese hogwarts. Walk inside and its gryffindor pride
everywhere.

*Personally, I’m a slytherin – which fits, since my Chinese zodiac Animal is the snake 🐍

Fishes and Peppers!

#Chinese New Year’s is upon us! I know because there are fish with red pepers being hung!

#Fish around the new years represents “nián nián yǒu yú (年年有鱼)” which means ‘May you have Fish every year.’  Apparently it is pronounced the same as ‘May you have extra each year.  Also the word for fish is similar to the Chinese word for ‘enough’

Apparently the red peppers repesent good luck and income (I’ve had different responses).  

So the picture means – ‘May you have enough of everything you need in the New Year!

Christmas Balloons!

#Christmas is here with trees and Christmas Light #balloons !!!!

They make the ballooons by taping lights on the outside. They are so beautiful and awesome!!

#Halloween Haunted House!

Totally awesome haunted house tonight.  So proud of my juniors!  All by themselves, they planned and put the party on. The 3rd and fourth floors had been transformed.  Piles of leaves all through the halls and rooms, scattered chair overturned for the ‘abandoned effect’!  The classrooms were amazing – evil butcher room with the creepy guy chopping bloody stuff; creepy dead bride in her red wedding dress, ghosts everywhere including up in the window ledges – they’d jump from the ceiling to scare people. 😱👻 People hiding under tables or in fabric screens would grab your feet 😂  I loved it!  Such a great job!

A Long Time Homecoming
