Last week was unusual because we had Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras and Chinese New Year all in one week. In addition, there was President's Day, Maha Shivaratri, Ash Wednesday, Tibetan New Year and, according to a local liquor store, National Wine Day. That could lead to a lot of celebrating.
I'm most interested in Chinese New Year, because it's my year, the Year of the Ram (or the Sheep or the Goat--I've seen all three.) 2015 is considered to be an inspiring period and a year of promise and prosperity.
Here are more details on the upcoming year. Hope all the positive predictions come true.
At the moment, I'm hoping to celebrate a few consecutive days of normal temperatures (high thirties.) It would be so nice.
