RETURNING JANUARY 30
What is the Lunar New Year?
The Lunar New Year is the beginning of a calendar year whose months are coordinated by the cycles of the moon.
For 15 days from late January to the middle of February, China, Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Singapore, and many of the Asian countries celebrate the Lunar New Year as a national holiday. The dates of the celebration are similar because many countries in Asia interpret the lunar calendar the same way.
2020 is going to be a FANTASTIC year!
Because 2020 will be the year of the rat!
In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day and is seen as a sign of wealth and surplus.
The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to mythology, the Jade Emperor said the order of the Lunar New Year calendar wouls be decided by the order in which arrived first. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming the first zodiac animal in the Lunar New Year Calendar.
We look forward to celebrating all of the good fortunes that will be coming to us this upcoming year!!
