Sunday i got to participate in what i remember as my first Chinese New Years celebration. We spent the afternoon in Whittier at Joy’s aunt’s house. They served up a lot of food, and we did some burning offerings to the dead, to hopefully bring us luck in the mortal realm. I did my part by burning hundreds of these $10,000 Hell Bank Note, in hopes that Joy and I will be able to pay off all the wedding bills that will be coming up shortly.
The kids got into the act too burning gold bars, clothing suits and shoes, and more money. We’ll see if works!
Happy New Year!
