Happy Lunar New Year Good Fortune Awaits

Today marks the beginning of the Seollal holidays and a brand new start to the lunar calendar year. It is a time to celebrate with your family and love loves as well as a time for paying respect to your ancestors. During this festive period, you may see people travelling in hanbok (traditional Korean clothes) and carrying gifts for their family. On the morning of Seollal, ancestral rites are usually performed in order to pay respects to the family members of times gone by. After the ritual, a generous feast is had and games played. It is quite a fun time.

We wish you only the best for the New Year that is at hand and hope that everything turns out the way you want it to. Happy Lunar New Year!

How to celebrate an authentic Chinese New Year
On the first day of the Chinese New Year, roosters crow to mark the arrival of New Year. The younger generation visits the older generations and receives New Year gift money from them. ‪#‎ChineseNewYear‬‪#‎SpringFestival‬

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy Year of the Wood Sheep friends!
"Sheep year is time for healing, kindness, and diplomacy. Sheep correlates to the Western sign Cancer, the sign of the mother and nurturer. So what is of value in Sheep year is intimacy, family, and close friendships. We can be more caring, gentle, and sensitive with each other. This is the year to develop a wild heart, open to love and acceptance on all levels.
Another theme of Sheep year is to express your creative side. Now is the time for artistic development and cultivation of beauty.
People born in Sheep years (2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967,1955, 1943, 1931, 1919, 1907) are artistic, kind, inspired, very empathetic, and naturally creative. They appreciate beauty in all its forms, and are connoisseurs of the best life has to offer. They can find success in artistic fields, especially the healing arts. With a tendency to be introspective, Sheep require solitary peaceful moments to replenish. Sheep often struggle in youth until their first Saturn return at age 28 – 30, but as they age become stronger and discover their true calling. The most fortunate part of a Sheep’s life is when they are an elder.
The mildness of Sheep can hide an independent streak. In the wild, Sheep are surprisingly tough and able to tolerate sever weather and scarcity of food. Sheep have this natural ability to survive when one must, and are far stronger than they appear. A Sheep can be calm and charming, yet is very focused and determined. A Sheep won’t be told what to do, stay at a job they dislike, or be forced to compromise. If you are not a Sheep favorite, and Sheep does have a small select group, Sheep won’t confront you but will just go their own way. So keep the peace this year while developing your spiritual path and exploring creative adventures in the arts."

Happy Lunar New Year's day! On Seollal, we perform charye, ancestral rites, to worship the ancestors. On the table for the ceremony is a variety of food items including rice cake tteok, meat, fried Korean-style pancake, fruits, etc. After the ceremony, we share the food.

I Believe...
A Birth Certificate shows that we were born.
A Death Certificate shows that we died.
Pictures show that we lived!
I Believe...
That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do love each other.
I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I Believe...
That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
I Believe....
That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
I Believe...

I Believe...
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
I Believe...
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had, and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
I Believe...
That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.
I Believe...
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life ... forever.
I Believe...
Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
I Believe...
That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.
I Believe...
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
I Believe...
That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.
I Believe....
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything.
