Lunar New Year 2021
BY SR. SYMPHONIE GIAO-HUONG NGOC NGO, CCVI
The Sisters celebrated the Lunar New Year on Feb. 5th with great flare. This year is the Year of the Buffalo. The Buffalo symbolizes industriousness and patience, a strong sense of patriotism for the country, ambitions for life, and the significance of family and career.
Sr. Kim Tran prepared many delicious traditional Vietnamese dishes. We also had a buffalo bar, which was served with gladness by Sr. Kevina (aka Ms. Bouquet) and her companions. The entertainment continued with the fan dance, Tet’s trivia, and the international fashion show. Everyone enjoyed the food, entertainment, and fellowship.
Afterward, some Sisters stayed for the movie, “Soul”, which is about a jazz pianist who has a neardeath experience and gets stuck in the afterlife, contemplating his choices and regretting the existence he took for granted.
It was a wonderful opportunity to see and share the blessings of the New Year with the Sisters from different communities. May God continue to bless each of us in the New Year with peace, joy, and love.
