Happy Lunar New Year!

Chúc Mừng Năm Mới (Happy New Year)! Năm Kỹ Hợi 2019 (The Year of The Pig 2019)! Luckily for me I get to celebrate New Year twice annually! If I miss January 1st for whatever reason I still have a second chance when the Lunar New Year comes around (cccurs either in January or February)! I made this card using a few photos that I took from one of my visits to Vietnam during the Lunar New Year (Tết). The yellow flowers pictured here are known as "hoa mai". All the homes are decorated with them in the southern part of Vietnam during each Tết. They are a symbol of prosperity and good luck. Green Crab Cafe would like to wish you and your family much happiness, good health, good eats (especially MORE green crabs!) and prosperity for the coming year!
