Gung Hey Fat Choy, Valentine!


So not only is it Valentine's Day today (smooch, smooch, mwah!) but it's also the Chinese Lunar New Year! 2010 is the Year of the Tiger, which means it will be a year of unexpected opportunities, bold and decisive actions, and major life experiences. Yowza!

Here's a little traditional ritual to encourage prosperity and abundance for the upcoming year. Exchange a penny (or other small coin) with another person while wishing them Gung Hey Fat Choy (Happy New Year)! Make sure each of you brings your own coin of equal value to give to one another -- don't just pass the same coin back and forth. You don't want prosperity to simply swirl or circle around -- you want it to come and stay with you!
