– Chinese New Year – was on 23 and 24 January, well, actually it should last 15 days but nowadays the celebration is kept to 2 days. Happy, yes, of course, when I am able be part of the celebration, we are all happy. I will celebrate as many festivals as I can, as I am able. Truly we must celebrate and rejoice the days ahead of us, enjoying every moment and every day when we have the physical strength. (smile..smile..smile.. all the way from Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Year and now Chinese New Year…. )
(King Solomon had this to say – “So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life GOD has given them under the sun.” Eccl 8:14
This is why he said what he said – “Consider what GOD has done: Who can straighten what He has made crooked? When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad consider this: GOD has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future.” Eccl.7:13-14)
Back to CNY – there was the reunion dinner for the family but this year I shall not be talking too much about food.
