Lunar New Year 2021
Our Lunar New Year celebration was a festive traditional family celebration for the entire house.
Although still observing social distancing guidelines, everyone enjoyed a delicious Chinese meal, and the Sisters distributed the traditional red envelopes (called lai see in Cantonese, hóng bāo in Mandarin and lì xì in Thai) that were each filled with lucky lottery tickets and a piece of chocolate. The chance to win a lottery prize added merriment to the day and was a reason for much lively chatter.
The celebration was enjoyed by all and gave a glimpse at 2021 bringing us closer to a possible return to pre-pandemic normalcy.
