February 8 marks the start of the new year, according to the lunar calendar. This year is the Year of the Fire Monkey.
Having spent many years living and working in Asian countries that celebrate the lunar new year, it’s also part of my own tradition. I haven’t sent out Christmas cards for a very long time, but for several years after I came back from my decade in Singapore I sent Chinese New Year cards instead. Not this year. Consider this post your New Year’s greeting from me!
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
