Year of the Rabbit
Today marks the start of Chinese New Year and the Year of the Rabbit (farewell tiger). I've always had a fondness for their furry loveliness and am happy to see rabbit imagery everywhere this week. The annual New York City Chinatown Lunar New Year parade and festival takes place on Sunday at 11:30 am starting in Little Italy. With wonderful floats, dragon dancers, and other performers, the parade is always fun to watch. And while we're on the subject of rabbits, I highly recommend checking out the Vintage Magpie whose owner, Nicky, makes the most adorable rabbits (and other animals). I have the pleasure of owning an original Vintage Magpie rabbit named Alfie. So yay for rabbits and Gung Hay Fat Choy everyone!
