Chinese symbols

This teddy-bear... well, teddy-cow, comes from the beijing carrefour shop. A lot were sold because, as I said, this new year, according to the chinese traditional calendar, is the year of the cow. And red, because red is a color supposed to bring a good luck. A new born baby willl soon get it as a gift.

Cette peluche qui vient du carrefour de Beijing n'est pas la cousine de la vache qui rit. Il y en avait de nombreuses à vendre dans le magasin. La nouvel année selon la calendrier traditionnel chinois est l'année de la vache. Et le rouge est une couleur qui apporte la bonne fortune. Un nouveau né la recevra bientôt en cadeau de naissance.
