Kung Hee Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year! Year of the Horse 2014

Aloha all you environmental readers and
a Happy New Year too!

Here's a special Kung Hee Fat Choy (Chinese New Year) celebration
that happens every year at various dates. This year it is in the month of January 31st.

If you know about the Western New Year's, then you
should also know that the East celebrates the New Year too!

This 2014 year is the Year of the Horse.

To celebrate, Chinatown in Honolulu is having it's delicious
food vendors, Chinese traditional lion dances (which scares
away the evil and brings good to health, wealth, and more),
and Goodluck Chinese New Year soup (Jai)!

How does this tie into environmental?

Since ancient practices are proven more and more useful in scientific studies, such as alternative healing, this helps people in all three things in life, which is mentally, physically, and spiritually.
It also helps people cherish and celebrate a New Year.
