Happy New Year! If you weren’t aware, January 23rd marked the beginning of the Lunar New Year. This is the year of the Dragon so if you have a little one on it’s way, consider yourself very lucky! People in Asia are expecting a “Dragon Baby Boom” because the sign is considered to be especially blessed with luck and strength. It is one of the most auspicious signs in the Chinese Zodiac.
If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area, there is a New Year Festival going on in Chinatown. It looks like a lot of fun for the kids. There will be lots of performances and booths, and if you’re a foodie, there will be some gourmet food trucks there as well. Something for everyone. The kids LOVE to take the train so as a bonus for them, we will hop on the MTA Gold Line in East L.A. This way we don’t have to deal with the many street closures and trying to find parking, which will probably cost as much as our train tickets.
Have a great weekend!
Here are some pictures from our Chinatown visit:
