HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR!

2017 – Year of the Rooster – 2017 

I found this fortune from Panda Express as a sign of good fortune. According to Chinese zodiac, I was born the year of the Rooster. (I am not Chinese but I find the culture fascinating and not to mention the diversity is huge in California) My family and friends half joke with me and say this will be my year… and so far it’s going really well!!

Many of my friends are Chinese. From what I have been told, a whole big family gathering happens the night before where they have a big feast and celebrate. Of course I lot of people know Chinese New Year as the red envelopes stuffed with “lucky money”, which means $$$.

The day of the new year everyone heads to the temples to pray, it’s an all day event. They travel to multiple temples and do not eat meat. Celebrations last about 2 weeks so for 2017 it starts eve of January 27 and ends February 2.

Enjoy the new year everyone!

I challenge you to capture #Fortune in a photo. #Your365Gem

Capture your moment.

I’m challenging myself to capture a photo a day, a 365 photo project. It’s a daily reminder to appreciate life. There may be days I’ll miss but I’ll try my best to capture the moment. I get a list of photo ideas from http://captureyour365.com, try it yourself.
