Happy New Year -- Gung Hay Fat Choy

Today marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year -- Year of the Dog (Fire Dog to be specific). Victoria is home to the oldest Chinatown in Canada and though the geographic area has shrunk over the years, the community is still strong; I am looking forward to next weekend's Lion Dance:

Feb. 5th: Bring in the Year of the Dog by coming down to the Gate of Harmonious Interest to see the annual Lion Dance performed by the Wong Sheung Kung Fu Club at 1:00 pm in Chinatown. This annual event is put on by the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association officially welcomes in the New Year!

In the meantime, may you all prosper and find happiness and friendship in the coming year!
