More Pre-CNY Activities

Our house looks so much more into the festivity of Chinese New Year because the boys are in school!!

Chinese calligraphy done by Micah, with the help of his teacher,
decorates the pillar at our porch.

Micah and Max came back with a bag each with crafts they had done in the theme of the Lunar New Year celebration.

The booklets had all the significant things of the celebrations:
Reunion dinner,
Tea Ceremony,
Lion Dance,
Mandarin Oranges,
Fire crackers,
and Visitations.

The night before the eve of CNY, grandma was busy doing up some decorations and the boys insisted on helping... putting "cherry blossoms" on a real cherry blossom plant.
The boys slowed her down a little, but no harm done.

The boys are so much more involved with the celebration now that they are older.

Our journeys,

Yeah, I was pretty impressed when they came home with all those stuff too. So nice.

The teachers are really good and do help the boys enjoy the different celebrations. The other one the usually so something about is Christmas and our National day.

They do get someone else to talk about Hari Raya and Deepavali too.
