How did we celebrate the Chinese New Year? Well, we had some friends over and ate Chinese food. We decorated our dining room with Chinese lanterns. We had black and red lanterns at first and soon after realized that was a big mistake. You never use black on the Chinese New Year. So we just used red and other colors. We had lots of fun dressing up in our Chinese clothes. We ordered food to go from King Tsin, our favorite Chinese restaurant, and had lots of fun with our friends.
