Good Luck Oranges and Hung Bao for Chinese New Year
Monday, January 23, 2012, is officially Chinese New Year – Happy Year Of The Dragon! Although I was born in the U.S. and have yet to visit China, I try to share some Chinese traditions with my kids (they sometimes call me Tiger Mom – I’m sure they’re just kidding, right guys?!). One of the traditions that we’ve celebrated since my boys were young is Chinese New Year. Although I think they go along with it for the “hung bao” (red packets of money that children receive from adults), I’m hoping they will have a little bit of appreciation for the Chinese culture.
