Happy Chinese New Year of the Pig

Chinese New Year is BIG on Maui as we have many Orientals living here, and Chinese New Year events are taking place all over the Island. Our family always participates by placing dollars in little red envelopes-- then feeding these envelopes into the mouth of the undulating, dancing dragon made of silk, paper, and bamboo. This ritual ensures good fortune for the coming year so the tradition goes. 2007 is the GOLDEN FIRE PIG year.

Here are some great links and articles if you would like to learn more about Chinese New Year:
