新年快乐 (Happy New Year!)

新年快乐 (Xīn Nián Kuài Lè) means Happy New Year in Chinese 🙂 This year is the Year of the Monkey! I think tomorrow I will try to add a description of the Chinese animals theory to DeceptivelyBlonde 🙂 

Anyway, Happy New Year from us in China! Here’s one of the beautiful fireworks that lit up the sky on New Year’s Eve 🙂 No one does firework like the Chinese!

Still Celebrating the Year of the Sheep!

辛年快乐! (Xīn nián kuài lè) Happy Chinese New Year’s!

Chinese New Year’s Celebration in Xinzheng, Henan, China. The fireworks were beautiful!  There were 8-10 sets of fireworks going off all around us all at once, and the sounds echoed like gunfire or shots.  It was everywhere, and it was glorious! I’ve never been close enough and high enough, but the fireworks were right in front of us at eye level!

Chinese Fireworks!

This video was taken by a friend of mine (I’ll upload mine tonight too), and I thought it did a great job of showing you just how many fireworks were going off all at once around the city. It was mind-blowingly cool!  I counted at least 10 places setting them off at the same time, and from the roof you could see them for miles!

Happy Chinese New Year’s.
