Chinese New Year:

Fresh bean curd or tofu is not included as it is white and unlucky for New Year as the color signifies death and misfortune.

The Tofu Guys are rather indignant, but Toaster made them all hide under the bed so that they won’t bring bad luck onto our household.


Other than that, the New Year is going quite swimmingly. We’ve discovered that Toaster has many Pig attributes:

Intellectually curious, honest and tolerant, those born in the Year of the Pig can be relied upon for their loyalty and often make true friends for life.

Like the knights of old, Pigs are often highly regarded for their chilvary and pureness of heart, and will often sacrifice their own well-being for the greater good.

The Pig can be very naive, however, and may easily fall victim to the unscrupulous who take advantage of their idealistic nature – as Pigs see everyone as loyal and caring as they are.

Boy, that fits Toaster to a T.

Yes, it’s Japanese, but fun (and you can do this with napkins as well, adding to the kitchen theme):
