Happy Lunar New Year: 2014 Year of the Horse
For those who celebrate, Happy Lunar New Year! In the Chinese Zodiac, 2014 signifies the Year of the Horse.
According to TravelChinaGuide.com:
The spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people’s ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able. Ancient people liked to designate an able person as ‘Qianli Ma’, a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one li equals 500 meters).
I’ll be feasting with relatives on both sides of my family and will probably have more food updates to share later. 🙂
