This is a bit overdue but with New Years, as with wedding gifts, we have all year right?
A few weekends ago my immediate family traveled from 3 Southern points (Raleigh, Asheville, and Atlanta) to converge at my brother's place in Charlotte, NC, the effective half-way point, to celebrate Chinese New Years!
The Lunar New Year has been a big deal for my family as long as I can remember. We're a family of many heritages, so the Lunar New Year gets as much attention as Christmas.
The event is always supplemented with a feast cooked by Mom, which hasn't hurt its estimation within our family.
This year, she really outdid herself.
