That's Happy New Year in Vietnamese. I have several Vietnamese students, all adopted members of one family (who I adore and feel intense kinship with), and today they brought me a party tray of Vietnamese candies to celebrate the New Year. I did not expect this, but am deeply grateful for their friendship and their presence in my classroom and in my life.
One of the children in the family is Isaac's age and the two of them are very close friends -- being Pokemon and Bakugan addicts -- and today he brought Isaac a little red envelope with a dollar in it (a gift of good luck).
Happy New Year, y'all!
