What is Lunar New Year?
Do you celebrate Lunar New Year? Lunar New Year is a festival that is celebrated primarily by Asian cultures; Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean. Lunar New Year represents the first new moon of the Lunar Calendar. Each year there is a zodiac animal that represents the beginning of a new day. The zodiac animal that represents 2020 is the Rat which should mean good health, luck, and reproduction – lots of marriages and baby-making ;).
What can you bring to celebrate?
If you are attending a festival or seeing family you will probably need these Chinese Red Envelopes – usually, money is gifted (dollar amount is not significant). The red envelopes signify good luck, good power, and overall good vibes.
