Chinese New Year Gifting

What is Chinese New Year?

Did you know that the start of a new moon falls on the 25th of January this year?

In other words, Chinese New Year is approaching! This festival is the most important celebration in China. The Chinese tradition dedicates a year to one of the twelve animals from the Chinese Zodiac:

Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. 

The year 2020 is dedicated to the first animal in the Zodiac, the Rat!
Do you know why the Rat is first? In Chinese mythology, twelve animals were selected to compete in a race. The Rat tricked the Ox to let it ride on its back. When the Ox was close to the finish line, the rat jumped ahead and became the first one to complete the race.

How is it celebrated?

Specific dishes are eaten to bring  good luck for the coming year. Dishes like dumplings, fish, Tangyuen (Glutinous sesame rice balls), Niangao (Glutinous rice cakes), Fruits (tangerines and oranges), and Longevity noodles.

When this festival arrives, you will be surrounded by the color red. Wearing red and decorating with this color is believed to bring you good luck and fortune. 

Red envelopes are given to children and retirees which are also believed to bring good luck!
