A dear blog friend of mine happened, during the week, to mention the Chinese New Year celebrations on January 27th in Helsinki. Thanks to her we were there. Second time for us. Last time was in 2008. This time the event was in a different place. It was nice and interesting. So colorful, dancing dragons, food stands, lanterns etc. Unfortunately we were able to stay only for about 1 ½ h. Later in the evening there was also a concert and fireworks. Maybe we’ll stay for those next year. It’s the year of the rooster. Online you can check what your zodiac sign is. I found out I’m borne in the year of rooster. I read the definition. Among other thing it says people borne in the year of rooster are often strangely stubborn. Hmmm, that’s what I’ve been told I am for as long as I can remember 😀 Nowadays I’m trying hard not to be too stubborn. In the car on the way home I said to my husband I, actually for once, didn’t take many pictures but I took an about 2 minutes clip of the dancing dragons. I think it is really nice. I was so excited about it I had to check it immediately. I checked it once, twice and a third time. Whaaat ? ! ? The clip was only 1 second ! ! So disappointed 😦

    That looks like fun! That ice sculpture is amazing!! The year of the rooster? I like that! 😀 I was born in the year of the Tiger. I’m also a Leo. Most of the time, I’m a purring pussy cat, but if someone makes me angry, I turn into a roaring monster… :/
