Feb.3, 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit according to Chinese New Year
tradition.That is one party that goes on for 15 DAYS!!!  Boy do they know how to CELEBRATE!  People will pour out their money to buy presents, decoration, material, food, and clothing. It is also the tradition that every family thoroughly cleans the house to sweep away any ill-fortune in hopes to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red colour paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of "happiness", "wealth", and "longevity". On the Eve of Chinese New Year, supper is a feast with families. Food will include such items as pigs, ducks, chicken and sweet delicacies. The family will end the night with firecrackers. Early the next morning, children will greet their parents by wishing them a healthy and happy new year, and receive money in red paper envelopes ($8 is a lucky amount). The Chinese New Year tradition is a great way to reconcile; forgetting all grudges, and sincerely wish peace and happiness for everyone. wikipedia
Mickey and Minnie get in on that action during one of the many celebrations in Disney on Ice: Let's Celebrate!

Ohh, its hard to decide what I would do! It would have to be something for myself--no kids! I'm selfish like that! (Lets face it, I'd spend it on the kids...love 'em too much!I know! The dinosaur museum!)

K Moser: kmfee802@gmail dot com: I would give the $8 to my son to give to someone else. (Find a penny pick it up, give it to a friend and you'll have good luck...think what 800 pennies would do.) Right now he doesn't know the monetary value and I love seeing him care for others.

S Norton jsnorton05@gmail.com Hmmm what would I do with $8.00?? I would probably use it on boys if they were in need of something. Or buy something fun for my husband.

If I were given the $8 I would donate it to the American Cancer Society. The K-Bull radioathon is taking place so I would donate it there. My husband is a cancer survivor of 3 years and my Grandpa passed away from cancer.

I think I would take my 3 kids on a scavenger hunt to the dollar store. Ask them to find different things through out the store in different colors. Take them all home and have a party.
