Chinese New Year – Year of the Sheep

By Shweta Pangam

With the Year of the Horse coming to an end, people all around the world are anticipating the arrival of the sheep and a grand start to another Chinese New Year. With preparations ranging from cooking traditional Chinese food to shopping for decorations, we thought to ourselves, why not put those K-Cup® packs to use and make our own Chinese New Year decoration!
