Happy Lunar New Year! These flowers are the icons of Tet - which is what we call New Year in Vietnam. This time of year is the most festive and friendly moments of the whole year. I am happy to see some of the tradition reoccurring in the US today, especially around areas where there are a lot of Vietnamese. Just like anything though, if it's good, people know about it and guess what happens? Too crowed, too chaotic, and that leaves me out. As I age, I am not so much for crowds and traffic- I find other ways to enjoy from afar, like looking at the photos below. A symbolic of Tet and my feelings at the moment I saw them. Have a wonderful day!
Thank you and have a wonderful Lunar New Year!
