Happy Chinese New Year

. . .

– Jumpin’ Jack’s fireworks seen from Cucumber Alley –

The Chinese, or Lunar, New Year is celebrated around the world.  The celebration may be a bit more subdued here in the Stockade, but the wishes for fortune and productivity are hardy and warm.  This posting has a few photos that put a Stockade neighborhood gloss on the lunar Year of the Wood Horse. (As always, click on a photo for a larger version and scroll over it for a description.)
