In the Western world we’re well into our New Year, and 2013 has brought us cold weather and…well, more cold weather. However, on Sunday, over in the Far East, Chinese New Year celebrations began. Also referred to as the ‘Spring Festival’ in China, Chinese New Year is the most important annual Chinese holiday and this year celebrates the year of the snake. GWD has had a couple of orders related to the celebration of Chinese New Year and given that they are quite off the wall I thought we’d share them with you.
The dust has now truly settled following the festive season and the January and February doldrums are upon us. As we trudge through the cold and wet experiencing that unique comedown that only comes with the conclusion of Christmas, we could be forgiven for feeling a little bit sorry for ourselves.
