2019 Lunar New Year

Chúc mừng năm mới, friends! And in case you didn’t know, I just wished you a Happy (Lunar) New Year! Today, many Asian cultures are celebrating 2019, the Year of the Pig.  The Lunar New Year isn’t just celebrated by the Chinese. Vietnam, Korea, Laos, Singapore and many other Asian countries also celebrate Lunar New Year. And since I’m Vietnamese and part Chinese (and French), I thought I’d give you a small snippet of what today’s celebrations are all about!
