Mariana, CNY, and a Head On Chicken (?!)

Chinese New Year is a good way to learn about inflation. When we were kids, we would collect between $2 and $5/ red pocket in lucky money from our elders. That seemed like so much money then. Nowadays, even despite being 'all grown up', we're still collecting red pockets from our aunts, uncles, and other relatives, but the pockets are stuffed with $20's and $50s. That's like 1000% inflation over the past couple decades.

Anyways, this is just a quick photo dump from this past weekend, when my niece and bro came down and joined in the lucky money collecting craze.

And then of course, I have to include a random photo of a cooked chicken. It's CNY, and you can't celebrate this holiday without at least one boiled, head on chicken. Hey, I didn't make the rules.
