Happy Chinese New Year: Year of the Fire Monkey

Happy Chinese New Year to all my readers! We are now in the year of the Monkey! Any baby born in this year will be a FIRE monkey. We are currently celebrating by eating dumplings (jiaozi), spending time with family and listening to LOTS and LOTS of fireworks.
