Chinese New Year 2010

Chinese New Year 2010

The second of the three New Years that are celebrated in Thailand is happening right now; the Chinese New Year and that will be the Year of the Tiger.

We had our traditional Western New Year earlier this year and in April Songkran or the Thai New Year will blast over Thailand.

As already mentioned in today's weather update, very early on there was the sound of fire crackers going on all over the place and around our house. A habit that should ward off the evil spirits for a year.

At World Resort where I'm currently teaching an IDC there are many offerings at the various shrines located throughout the resort since the family that owns World Resort have a Chinese background and many original Samui family have also a Chinese background with most of the roots coming from the island of Hainan.

This is also a time of the year when many people travel around the country in order to visit relatives and friends.

Hi Talen,

My wife is not of Chinese heritage (is that the right word?) hence no biggie in our household!
