even though we’ve been here for 6 years, this will be our first year to actually be in country when the spring festival is actually celebrated. in the past, this has been the best time to get away for a bit, but with the smallest baby sprout not yet even being 3 months old…we decided staying put was best and cheapest. also, we had previously been in country all the way up to the actual day, and other years have been back in country the day after, and we got to experience the wonder of endless fireworks, but this year – it’s all different.
the oh so ever important nap time (known as “golden hour” by me) has been cancelled due to extreme noise, thus making our little ones quite grumpy. i know what you’re thinking…”those super cute little sprouts of yours can’t possibly get grumpy!” hahaha. our sprouts rock and all, but this rookie has learned that no nap = no happy.
it is the result of giving over one billion people access to professional grade fireworks, and giving them a festive occasion to use them. enjoy!
