So guess what February 3 is?! The Lunar New Year!
Well, I call it Chinese new year, but many other Asians also celebrate the lunar new year so it wouldn’t be fair just to call it Chinese new year! I’m Chinese and my family celebrates it every single year with my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. But this year I’m staying home to go to one of my best friend’s Sweet 16. I’m upset, but it’s worth it.
Every new year, the adults give the children red and gold envelopes with money inside of them. It is supposed to bring luck and good fortune to them for the year. I’m not an adult, but I’m giving away one red envelope filled with book swag! Actually, I’m only giving away stickers and tattoos relating to young adult books. Book swag is fun, but I have always loved the stickers and tattoos. Bookmarks can get boring 😛 Not only that, but I added Chinese candy (it’s a hard candy, like a lollipop).
So here’s the nice little red envelope filled with swag:
When I’m given an envelope, I have no idea what is inside. It is also rude to open it in the presence of the person who gave it to you, so that is why I didn’t show you exactly what tattoos and stickers were inside. But, if you want to see which ones are in the envelope, click here (I think it would be more fun to be surprised though).
Wanna win!? I hope you do cause I’m pretty sure not many others are giving away something for the Lunar New Year!
Comment below with a book that you have read that is Asian-inspired or has Asian characters in it! Or if you haven’t, comment with your favorite Asian food 🙂
There are none. But I would really appreciate it if you would become a blog subscriber or spread the word.
