A House on a Horse

Last week, after I wrote about the term mashang” (on the horse) and how it’s being used to express the hopes and wishes for the Year of the Horse, a reader in China sent me this photo. It’s a play on the New Year’s Greeting, “mashang you fang,” which conveys the wish that this is the year to own a home. The literal translation, of course is “the horse is on the house.”


Yup, there it is….the house is on the horse!

Thanks, NG, for the photo!
