Today is Dr. Seuss’s 111th Birthday. And as it is every year on his birthday, it’s Read Across America Day!
We couldn’t agree more with the quote below.
And here are 5 more Life Lessons from Dr. Seuss we found online…
- Today you are YOU, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You!
- Why fit in when you were born to stand out?
- You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
- Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
- Today I shall behave, as if this the day I will be remembered.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! >^..^<

Chinese New Year is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar, a lunar calendar, marking the end of the long winter and beginning of spring. It is also called the Spring Festival.
It is the longest and most important celebration on the Chinese calendar. The celebration last 15 days and each day has a different meaning and festivity.
Within China and around the world, customs and traditions for celebration vary. The evening preceding Chinese New Year’s Day is often an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck.
Windows and doors will be decorated with red color paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of “good fortune” or “happiness”, “wealth”, and “longevity.” Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes.
