Celebrate Lunar New Year!


Happy Lunar New Year! Today, Feb. 15th is Lunar New Year here in Korea. While many of you might be celebrating Valentines's Day, at our house, we're having a dual hoiday. Lunar and Valentines.

Last year, I did a little post on the holiday, so for more details, check it out.

Here in Korea, they celebrate both the solar new year's day on Jan. 1st and the Seollal, which generally falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice.

For Lunar this year, we made the cute paper lanterns that you see in the picture. Check out this link to make one for yourself.

We also passed out Valentines to each other, too, along with lots of hugs and kisses.

And I made a Valentine for you too! I love my fellow bloggers! Click on this link to make one of your own.

I'm also celebrating! I'm Vietnamese so I'm call it Tet but my Vietnamese and Korean friends are coming by with gnom-gnoms and then it's poker time! Maybe I have time to make a paper lantern before then.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
