New Yeeeeear!

We celebrated the Chinese New Year this monday! 

It's the year of dragon and it's my year. Chinese people believe that you're to expect bad luck in your own year, which is why your family members and friends give you accessories or jewelry that are gold or red to ward off evil. I got a package from my mom a couple of weeks back so now I have a red bracelet with a gold dragon pendant on it, and ten red socks from my family:D And my roommate got me a huge red shawl for Christmas, so I'm feeling pretty protected now!

Here're some pictures I took of the fireworks over the City Hall and old town of Stockholm on the (Western) New Year's eve. 

How did you spend New Year's?

And some recent custom stamps:
