Happy New Year!


According to the Lunar calendar, today is the first day of the new year. This year is the year of the pig in the Chinese zodiac. One of the things one does is to offer thanks to Buddha and also to your ancestors. And to ask for additional blessings in the new year. On the ceremonial table, you will find things such as water, coffee, cookies, candy, meat fill rice cakes, and other yummy treats.

You said on my blog that the spoons look more interesting than what you have in your kitchen. Boy, I think what you show today is very interesting. I'd love to be sitting at your table right now.
