Xin Nian Kuai Le

Happy New Year - Xin Nian Kuai Le - Gong Hei Fat Choi

Having lived in Chinese places for many years and ministering to Chinese this has become one of the holidays that we celebrate in our own way. Bob did ask if he would be getting a red envelope this year.

Last weekend we went to a Lunar New Year celebration at the church here. It is a great outreach to the Asians in the community.

There was a variety type show which is typical for Chinese New Year.  There were games, Pin the Tail on the Horse, craft, and Chinese food for dinner.

The big event is the ping pong tournament. It is quite intense with single elimination and games to just 11 points.

Bob won his first game and then lost the second game to someone that made it to the semifinals.

My husband made it through three rounds and then lost. He said the competition was good.

Miss K enjoyed the games. How many gummy bears can you move to the bowl with the chopsticks. I think she got four to bring home. I guess we need to work on her chopstick skills.

It was a fun evening and a great event.

Today we will enjoy some dumplings for lunch and go to a party for the international small group at church.

Do you celebrate Chinese New Year? What is your favorite Chinese food to eat?

  1. What a fun way of celebrating. We are just have a celebratory dinner with some games after.

  2. This looks fun. We celebrated, on the spur of the moment, when one of the children started looking through recipe books for a Chinese meal because she thought we ought to have something special for Chinese New Year. It was fun cooking something different although some of the children weren't sure about the food!
