A Touch of Winter Magic

If you’re planning a winter vacation (because it’s too hot outside and you’re already wishing for winter!), I highly recommend #Harbin in northern #China!  Their #IceFestival is something children can only dream of. Real reindeer, ride in a sleigh, gorgeous sculptures you can actually climb!  One of the most magical sights I’ve seen in my life and it lived up to all my expectations. 

Also, you can find more of my pictures from Asia on my website ‘A Life Savored’ at  www.ALSfoto.com

Awww, #Starbucks has little #puppy cups for the #Chinese New Year Festival ❤️🐶 This is the year of the dog!! If you were born in 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, or 1958 – this is probably your year!!!!!

BTW – today is the Small Chinese New Year when you clean the house, get rid of last year’s stickers & tokens, and send the kitchen god to heaven to report on the family’s behavior over the past year All in preparation for the big day!. Happy Small Chinese New Year!

#China Spring Festival (gryffindor house would be proud)

Chinese Spring Festival🐉 . . . when all of China turns into gryffindor 🦁 house and red and gold colors 🇨🇳 rule.

I think Walmart might be secretly connected to Chinese hogwarts. Walk inside and its gryffindor pride
everywhere.

*Personally, I’m a slytherin – which fits, since my Chinese zodiac Animal is the snake 🐍

Chinese Lantern Festival

According to traditional custom, today is the Chinese lantern festival! It’s a day when they light the paper lanterns and send them up as symbols of hopes and dreams for the future. A beautiful tradition!
