Chinese New Year- Year of the Horse

Today is the Chinese New Year! The year of the snake is over, it is now the year of the horse.
Am I the only one who finds all the animals fascinating? Rats, oxen, tigers, rabbits, dragons, snakes, horses, goats, monkeys, roosters, dogs, and pigs. 
In case you were wondering the Chinese New Year celebrations start CNY eve, and continue until the lantern festival (which the the fifteenth day after CNY).

Of course, what is Chinese New Year without putting on our Chinese clothes?
Both Joshua and Lily were very excited when I asked them if I could take their pictures in their Chinese clothes. 
It was super cold, and there was snow on the ground, but they were champs!

Zhōngguó xīnnián kuàilè- Happy Chinese New Year!
