May the Year of the Tiger bring you health and prosperity

Chinese New Year. The Lunar New Year begins Feb. 1, 2022, bringing us into the Year of the Tiger.

In China, the celebration of the Lunar New Year lasts 15 days, culminating in the Spring Lantern Festival. The aesthetic emphasis is on the color red, which is believed to bring fortune and ward off bad spirits, and children are traditionally gifted crimson envelopes with money as a sign of good luck and the expectation of abundance.

    I am the ox. “ As the strongest animal of the 12 Chinese zodiac signs, known as “the good helper” in Chinese farming, the Ox is a symbol of diligence, strength, honesty, down-to-earth persistence, and wealth.”
