New Year's Eve Celebration 2013

A memorable New Year's Eve was made possible by the 30+ people who participated in the Shao Shan Temple New Year's Eve Ceremony & Celebration...

A blazing fire in the snow,

the path to Shao Shan Temple front door lit by tiki torches,

silent meditation time,

time for a year review - what we wish to contine, what we wish to refrain,


fire purification at the outdoor bonfire,

a dedication for the new "Little Hall" building's opening and first public use,

a festive, social time with bountiful refreshments,

ringing a circle of bells for 108 minutes,

steaming bowls of Japanese noodles & tempura after midnight
