Yes, it is today, the beginning of Chinese lunar year, the year of horse.
My son called home to say happy spring festival. My daughter texted it to me. It gives me a warm feeling when the children think of you on occasions like this. Of course, I have received many good wishes from friends all over the states. They are another source of great joys in my life. Now I feel warm in my heart even in this freezing weather.
Like most of Chinese here in America, I work today as it is not an official holiday here. Nothing much to say for that now.
