{Saturday Morning Snapshot} – Chinese New Year’s Eve

It’s Chinese New Year’s Eve today! The day of last minute spring cleaning, last minute shopping and preparation for the important reunion dinner.

We spent the morning packing our home, preparing the red packets (for my friends overseas, these are (literally) red packets containing money, which are customarily given out by married couples during Chinese New Year – you can imagine why kids love Chinese New Year so much now) and putting up simple decorations.

We put this up on our front door this morning. It’a a decorative piece made up by the Chinese word 福 (which means bliss/happiness) and two snakes, because it is the year of the snake (a chinese zodiac sign) according to the lunar calendar.

All ready to bid goodbye to the year of the dragon and to usher in the year of the snake!

    • Haha the real celebration starts today (Sunday), which marks the beginning of a 15-day long celebration! Monday and Tuesday are public holidays here in Singapore (yay!). Next few days should be fun. 🙂
