Red Horse Year

It’s the Chinese New Year and it’s the year of the horse!  Everything is red…

The stores are decked out and many buildings also have red banners greeting the New Year.  Red is my favorite color but even I can get overloaded.

And if you were born in the year of the Horse, you need to wear your red underwear all year for good fortune!

Here’s a picture of the Character for Horse that we learned at Chinese Corner (and it’s NOT red).

  1. Tom is a Horse. Do I have to buy him red underwear so he can have good luck all year? Of course, getting him to wear it might pose a problem! Happy New Year!!

  2. Absolutely love the photos! Memories of 15 Lunar New Years! What a creative logo for the 2014 Year of the Horse. I’ve never seen the God of Wealth made of balloons before! Think of you and miss you and pray for you. Will send you a photo of Fri.’s P. mtg. just before the SEAHAWKS SUPERBOWL WIN!
    Blessings, Karen and Dan
