2022 Lunar New Year

2022 Lunar New Year
Posted on 02/01/2022

Lunar New Year 2022: Also known as Chinese New Year and Spring Festival, it is celebrated by Chinese communities across the world. This year it is observed Today, February 1.

Lunar New Year is celebrated across cultures, including Vietnamese, Korean, Tibetan, and Mongolian, and is arguably the most important holiday for Chinese families — think Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s all rolled into one!

Festivities typically span roughly 15 days, beginning on the evening of the new moon and ending on the full moon — again, this year, the Lunar New Year begins on Feb. 1.

In Chinese culture, each year is represented by one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, so if you see an increased representation of tigers in Chinese New Year decorations, it’s because this year is the Year of the Tiger. Those who are born in past Years of the Tiger — 2010, 1998, 1986 and so on — traditionally wear something red year round to ward off bad luck.

The Lunar New Year usually marks the reunion of more than a billion people with their loved ones.

We would like to take a moment to recognize our students, families, and community members that are celebrating the Lunar New Year ~ May this year bring you great health and prosperity.
