Happy Chinese New Year!

Today is the first day of Chinese New Year, which marks the start of the prosperous year of the Dragon. The Dragon is said to symbolize power, strength and good luck. (I think everyone can use some good luck these days, right?)

I’ve always wanted to experience a true Chinese New Year celebration. Despite the name, the holiday is celebrated all over Asia, including Thailand, Singapore, Korea, Vietnam & the Philippines. It seems like such a festive and bold celebration, a happy time where everyone travels home to be with thier families.

Have you ever experienced a Chinese New Year celebration?

I had a teammate and a coach in Germany who were Chinese. We celebrated with a big party at my apartment. It was so much fun. And although we had to practice on Christmas day, we had the day off for Chinese New Year!
