It’s the Year of the Pig!

Updated: Oct 7, 2020

May the new year bring in your life joys that never fade, hopes that never die, and strength that never weakens. Wishing you a very happy Chinese New Year.

The Lunar New Year—also known in the U.S. as Chinese New Year—is the first day of a 2-week long celebration full of exciting festivities and activities, such as eating food that represents luck, setting off fireworks, gifting red envelopes with money, and most importantly, spending time with family and loved ones. This year the celebration began on February 5th and will end on February 15th.

Even though the celebration is often called Chinese New Year in the U.S., the holiday is celebrated in more than ten countries, such as Korea, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, and by ethnically Chinese diasporas in the U.S. and around the world.

The Lunar New Year is associated with an animal in the Chinese zodiac each year. This year’s animal, the pig, represents sincerity, compassion, and generosity. Interested in learning more? Click here to read an overview of the this celebration.
