Gung hay fat choy!

It's the day I've been looking forward to since I was in London for New Year's - the day they're celebrating Lunar New Year in our Chinatown! I woke to the sound of CRACKLECRACKLECRACKLE that is 20 foot long strings of firecrackers being set off in front of the stores, and I'm going nuts here now knowing that out there the lion dancers are chasing after each other and trying to snag cabbage heads from in front of the shops they are blessing. Tomorrow the streets will be littered with red paper like drifts of flower petals under a plum tree, which will slowly blow away to become a mere gilding in the corners of the neighborhood.

I'll be down there soon. I can't wait! Oh, there the firecrackers go again ...
