Trident Celebrates the Chinese New Year

This is the ‘Year of the Dog’ in the Chinese calendar system.   So we rang in the Chinese New Year with a little extra fun, good food and even a couple of pictures posing with a stuffed stand-in.  The Year of the Dog holds the 11th place in the 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle.  This year the Chinese New Year officially starts on  February 16th and lasts through February 5th, 2019 (on our calendar).  For those who are interested, the Years of the Dog include 1922,1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030 and so on. Thanks to all who joined us for fun. Next year we have the “Year of the Pig” to look forward to 🙂
