2016 - The year of the Monkey



Liverpool's Chinatown always provide a fantastic celebration for the Chinese New Year, an astounding parade for all to enjoy. 2016 is the year of the Monkey. It is known as the unluckiest year in the Chinese calendar however lucky signs can include; the numbers 1-7-8, the colours white - gold - blue, the flowers chrysanthemums - alliums and the directions north - northwest - west. 

 My daughter M and me headed into town to enjoy the parade this afternoon, we love to experience the humdrum and fire-cracking festivities and this year's display didn't disappoint. We shared fortune cookies and Wok and Go noodles to complete our day out. The crowd was jam packed but it was a fun family day out sure to be remembered!
