Chinese New Years

February 12, 2008
By Iris Zhou, Milpitas, CA

Sounds of the firecrackers out my window

Aunts and uncles giving red envelopes to children

Containing two dollars

Hearing the reaction of the children of excitement

The house is decorated to keep in the good luck in

And is cleaned so there won’t be bad luck lurking

The whole family eating themselves full with delicious foods

Everyone wearing the traditional red

I could hear the television blaring Chinese shows

Celebrating the New Year
