To my Asian friends, I’d like to say, “Happy Chinese New Year!” I wish you a healthy, happy and prosperous 2016! I hope you receive a special red envelope too. Last year I had a friend who gave me a red envelope with a $1 inside and I do think it brought me luck. I smiled, because it was a gift I did not expect, so I felt included in the New Year’s celebration, which was wonderful! This year, at the suggestion of one of our Asian employees, our company went to a Chinese brunch to celebrate together. It was very nice — about 25 of us. A girlfriend of mine was invited for dumplings by her Asian yoga teacher. So, thank you for including us in your celebration!
Here’s to a special 2016 for all of us!
