Year Of The Rat

Technically, it’s not the Year of the Rat until tomorrow, but for us, the celebration has started since last week, after the Kitchen God’s farewell ceremony on the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month (in Vietnamese mythology, each household has a kitchen god, and a week before the New Year, he will return to Heaven to report on the family’s activities to the Jade Emperor, who will reward or punish the family accordingly, so every family has to offer the Kitchen God a great feast in the hope that he’ll put in a good word for them.) I’m helping my family to prepare for New Year’s Eve, so here are some photos of a New Year flower market for you guys to enjoy. Regular posting will resume next week; see you then!
