Christmas Light Show

Happy  Chinese #LanternFestival!

Happy Lantern Festival!  Tonight is the night (15 days after #ChineseNewYear ) when the Chinese light paper lanterns and send them up to the sky.  
My picture wasn’t very good 😭 I’ll post a better one later. But the #moon sure was pretty! Here in Zhengzhou, we have the highest smog records for the country, so the moon is a rare night.  Today was perfect for the festival! Clear skies, brisk air, and a good wind. 😄 
Wishing you all the best and a great upcoming year! 🍀

Xin Nian Kuai Le 新年快乐

Happy Spring Festival to any Chinese viewers! Today is the first day of the Year of the Rooster. Wishing you money in your purses, love in your hearts, family in your homes, luck in your future, and wisdom in your minds

新年快乐 (Happy New Year!)

新年快乐 (Xīn Nián Kuài Lè) means Happy New Year in Chinese 🙂 This year is the Year of the Monkey! I think tomorrow I will try to add a description of the Chinese animals theory to DeceptivelyBlonde 🙂 

Anyway, Happy New Year from us in China! Here’s one of the beautiful fireworks that lit up the sky on New Year’s Eve 🙂 No one does firework like the Chinese!
