Happy Lunar New Year!

Little Beauties Art Cards: Change Is Inevitable
Ten 5" x 7" cards & envelopes
Hand stamped on back

I goofed (I know, bad me) in my newsletter when I said last week that there were ten days left before the Lunar New Year (commonly known in the States as "Chinese New Year," although the Chinese are not the only ones to celebrate it). Today is actually New Year's Day and yesterday was New Year's Eve!

Fish are considered a symbol of abundance and prosperity for the Chinese because the word for "fish" sounds like it. We eat birthday cakes with "happy birthday" written on them for similar reasons!

Neat, right?
