It’s Chinese New Year and 2022 is the Year of the TIGER!

02/01/2022

Happy Chinese New Year! The Chinese New Year of the Tiger will coincide with the 2022 Olympics!  It starts February 1st, 2022, and the celebration will go on for about 14 days. People born in a year of the Tiger are predicted to be brave, competitive, unpredictable, and confident. Perfect for the Olympics!

Millions of people across China have been celebrating the arrival of the New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival – the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. People from all over the world travel to China to celebrate, and it’s considered the largest annual migration on a global scale. It’s celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar and is the longest festival of the year. It traditionally runs from Chinese New Year’s Eve on the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month. The first day of the New Year falls between January 21 and February 20.

Regional customs for the celebration of the Chinese New Year vary. Usually, it’s a time for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. It is also tradition for every family to thoroughly clean the house to sweep away bad luck and make way for good luck in the coming year. Homes are decorated in red with themes representing “wealth” and “longevity”. There are fireworks, dragons, lion dances, money given away in red envelopes and more!

Bon Voyage!
