Celebrating Chinese Lunar New Year 2014

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

As the Chinese said goodbye to the Year of the Water Snake, OLM’s with our Sr. Lucy (of Chinese heritage) welcomed in the new Year of the Horse.  Lucy prepared the celebration with special decorations and delicious Chinese dishes which were enjoyed with much conversation around the table.

Later we gathered in the living room where we each received a fortune cookie, a bright red envelope of “lucky” money, and an explanation of our own Chinese zodiac sign.  As always, it was a blessing to experience something of another culture. 

May Lucy receive special blessings this year as she herself was born in the Year of the Horse!
