Happy Year Of The Horse!

Hi ho, Silver! Happy New Year. It’s the Year of the Horse!

Today is New Years Day in China (and indeed, around the world), bringing with it the annual combination of travel, fireworks, the consumption of traditional New Year’s food, and a much enjoyed break from the day to day toil of school for the younger set and work for those older.

This photo is an interactive map from the Chinese website Baidu, showing the busiest travel routes this holiday season, as millions of Chinese head home or take off for a trip during the holiday.

 

 

The Spring Festival, from New Year’s Eve until the last fireworks fall from the sky on the 15th day of the first month, at the Lantern Festival.

 

For our family to yours, we wish you and yours a very happy and prosperous Year of the Horse! 贺新禧!
