You know how crazy it is to not find a topic on the Chinese New Year that's coming up? [February 18th to be exact] O..O Or the Lunar New Year, whichever you call it, whichever nationality you lean towards. >..> But yeah, for anyone that's going to celebrate it, what do you usually do? Anything interesting, with friends, or family?

My family does this Buddhist ceremony praying to the Gods and serving them fruits and tea. Then the paper burning and I guess you can call it "fasting".

With friends...we used to take the day off from school saying it's a holiday for us, and go eat at a fancy restaurant for fun. =3

If you're not usually celebrating the Lunar New Year, think it might be a holiday you might want to get into? Not saying all that ceremonious stuff, but be more aware of the tradition and find some way to incorporate it into your life. ♥ I know a friend who doesn't really do anything "traditional", but she comes with me to festivals and try out the food, watching the Dragon dance and etc.

edit: Oh yeah, how could I forget the most important part? XD The red envelopes~♥ Getting money to spend is wicked, hehe. I used to always look forward to that.

xD Something about giving it to them to spend money, and sorta like offerings? If I remember right...it's also for deceased loved ones to use in the afterlife.
