Tet 2012--The Year of the Dragon


Today is the official beginning of Tet, the Lunar New Year, but we started a little early with a celebration last night in our community room!

We began our celebration with our traditional New Year dance. This year was rather challenging as we danced with lighted candles! Our music was a lovely Vietnamese-English version of the song "Christ Be Our Light". We would like to share a few highlights:




We also played several fun games, including this one where you had to roll or throw a "pearl" into the dragon! As you can see, some of our sisters were able to wear traditional Vietnamese dresses over their habits (donated by a friend of the community).

A wonderful time was had by all! Thanks so much to the kind and generous benefactors who helped make our Tet celebration possible with snacks, treats and lucky money! We are so grateful to you!
