Happy New Year 2018

2018 has arrived and it is the Year of the Dog in our Asian zodiac calendar (of 12 animals).  In their order: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, pig.  Here’s a preview of some upcoming events in Tucson:

Tucson Japanese Festival celebrating the New Year on Jan. 20, 2018 at PCC Downtown (1 to 5 p.m.).  Sponsored by our So. AZ Japanese Cultural Coalition:  www.southernazjapan.org, where I am the website Editor.


Chinese New Year of the Dog at Tucson Mall on Feb. 10, 2018 (11 to 8 p.m.).  Sponsored by Tucson Chinese Cultural Center (of which I am a member),  website:  www.tucsonchinese.org.

Both events are open to the public.  Come & celebrate the New Year 2018, either Japanese or Chinese style, with cultural food and music/dance performances.

As for politics, let’s look forward to the New Year for better prospects (despite the  Republican Trump Administration, almost a year old now). As AZ Blue Meanie says 2018 may be a time of Resistance & Renewal: http://blogforarizona.net/2018-the-reckoning-resistance-and-renewal/

Happy New Year!  Welcome 2018.
