The Year of the Horse is around the corner and as part of the celebrations to welcome the Chinese New Year; the Chinatown Merchants Association’s “Night in Chinatown Street Festival” was in full swing yesterday. In spite of the “Night in Chinatown” moniker, the event is an all-day one and morning people like me had the chance to enjoy the sights and sounds of the celebration. This annual street festival is one of my favorites because I get to do the luck-enhancing stuff: feed the lion, get chun lian (red paper banners with auspicious messages), and eat my favorite Chinese New Year’s food, jin dui.
Happy Year of the Horse to everyone! Kung Hee Fat Choi!
