Gong Xi Fa Cai
… which is, near as I can tell from the Interwebz, the English spelling of what, phonetically, I’d learned as “gung hei fat choy” — Happy Chinese New Year. This year, Chinese New Year falls on January 31st, and 2014 is the Year of the Horse. Thought I’d share a few of the nicer images I’ve seen to celebrate the occasion. (There are some even nicer ones that are copyrighted and/or not free, and I’m not sharing those … if any of the ones I am sharing are violating anyone’s rules, please just let me know and I’ll take them down with a big mea culpa.)
Also — if you have a nice one you’d like to share, send it hither and I’ll add it to the gallery!
