Chinese New Year is one of the most important holidays in Chinese culture, celebrated by Chinese families worldwide or by people interested. In the past or in some areas now, it lasts for fifteen days. Now, most of countries will observe it for at least three days, starting from the New Year Eve. Whole family will get together at the New Year Eve’s dinner. Not only enjoy the traditional gourmet dishes but share what’s happened in the last year and its meaning to the whole family. A lot of family traditions and history are passed on through this event and blessings are spread among everyone. What a joyful time!
Chinese New Year is always associated with the twelve-animal zodiac cycle. 2022 will be the year of the tiger, starting on February 1st. Tiger is known as courageous, competitive, self-confident, brave, and as the king of all beasts in Chinese mythology. We certainly hope you will act like a tiger this year.
