恭禧发财: happy new year

As China rings in the Year of the monkey - join in the seven day celebration February 8 through February 14. Kick off spring by filling your home with cherry blossoms to symbolize fragility and the beauty of life, a bowl of  tangerines with leaves attached for good luck and longevity.  Make a symbolic feast of savory dumplings for prosperity, sweet dumplings for togetherness,  lychees for close family ties, kumquats for wealth. And indulge the children around you with envelopes of "lucky money" and "caps" to scare away evil spirits. But be sure to wait a few days after the celebration to sweep it up so you don’t accidentally sweep up your new found good luck.
