Happy Lunar New Year . . . .

Happy Lunar New Year to all of you!

This year celebrates the year of the Boar. According to Wikipedia:

In China, the
Boar ( ) is associated with fertility and virility. To bear children in the year of the pig is considered very fortunate, for they will be happy and honest.


LUNAR NEW YEAR: Calligraphy master Feng- Tzu Chan created this set of New Year’s banners for Vancouver Sun readers. Left, it says, The world at peace, people at peace, 10,000 things all at peace. Right, The heavens in harmony, the Earth in harmony, the sun, the moon, the stars in harmony.

This in contrast to the traditional January 1st New Year's celebration in Vancouver - The Polar Bear plunge into English Bay . . . .

Definitely different strokes for
different folks . . . .

Ain't life grand?!?!?
