I just recently returned to Singapore from the USA and was immediately thrust into the fervor that accompanies Chinese New Year here in Singapore.
The first thing I saw on arrival, was the massive and quite beautiful "Year of The Horse" display at Changi Airport. Changi, really is the most wonderful airport and there is always something interesting to look at there.
The celebrations are this coming weekend, the first day of the Lunar New Year being Friday 31st January and the Year of the Horse will last until 18th February 2015.
For the last month or so, it has been impossible not to notice the Mooncake madness here in Singapore!
The Mid Autumn Festival, which typically falls on the 15th day of the 8th Lunar month, is the 3rd major festival of the Chinese Calendar, (following after Chinese New Year and the Spring Festival). Also known as the Moon Festival, because at this time of year the moon is at it's highest and brightest, it will be celebrated this year on the 19th September. The build up to this Festival, has been a flurry of Mooncakes for sale everywhere.
WHO IS LYNNY?
My name is Lynn, Lynny or even Lynnykansas. Blame the latter on a "Dorothy" Halloween Costume and a very funny kid a number of years ago (yes, that's you Meg!). I am a Brit who has spent 16 years in the USA, but is now experiencing life in Singapore for awhile, as a "Trailing Spouse".
More about me and why the blog is called It's Lynny Kansas.......
