|What's Chinese New Year without some Lanterns?|
The BEST PLACE to shop for Chinese New Year (if you don't live near Chinatown) would be World Market. OMG I love that place. When I lived in San Mateo, just 20 miles south of San Francisco, I used to shop the Cost Plus/World Market at the Hillsdale Mall. Once in a while, a special treat was to go into the "city" and shop at the World Market they have there!
Chinese New Year is next Friday, January 31. A fun way to introduce a new cuisine to your family - as well as discovering a new culture without having to leave your house.A great way, to invite the family over or friends and just about everybody loves Chinese food!
