Tjilpi

Gong Xi Fa Cai, to you too.

You had me going for a minute. Reading the description of the personality of people born in the Year of the Dog reminded me very much of myself.

But it's OK. I checked. 1948 was the Year of the Rat.

Mmmm, so you're actually supposed to be 'charming, hardworking, thrifty and successful'. Hopefully, that is more like the real Tjilpi.

Thanks for those links, Jude. When I followed up the link to Sydney's celebrations, I saw that they have a lantern festival. They have one in Auckland that my dad and I visited a couple of years ago. It was the first time I had come across one, and it was magical! I've never heard of one in Melbourne or Bendigo, where the Chinese communities also celebrate in a big way - I'll check that out.

Charming, yes. The rest I missed out on!
