From one holiday and onto the next one…Chinese New Year! As an ABC (American Born Chinese), I love sharing my heritage with my non-asian friends so you bet I’ll be making a big fuss about The Year of the Dragon come January 23! :)
Chinese New Year falls after the January 1 New Year date because it’s based on the lunar calendar. It’s probably my favorite Chinese holiday as it’s a two-week long celebration filled with family gatherings, LOTS of food, red envelopes (though I don’t receive these anymore now that I’m married…darn!), festive decorations, and more food. :) Didn’t I say I live to eat??
As a child, I always looked forward to getting red envelopes! I didn’t really get allowances growing up so you can imagine how excited I got getting money in cute little red envelopes! So, I decided to make a red envelope printable so YOU TOO can get excited! Unless you live near an Asian market, it’s a little hard to find these envelopes but now you can print them from your home! Happy Chinese New Year! :)
