Kung Hei Fat Choi – it’s officially The Year of the Rabbit!

February 3, 2011 at 2:20 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

 

Do you love delicious pork, duck, fruits and Chinese delicacies? Do you love getting gifts of money in little red envelopes? If so, Chinese New Year is the celebration for you! Chinese New Year begins on the first day of the New Moon (which this year happens to be today, 3rd February!) and ends 15 days later with the famous Lantern Festival. It’s a joyous time for families, and all the members of  a Chinese family will meet up to eat delicious Chinese food and catch up with the news and also honour their dead ancestors. Shops, houses and streets are decorated with wonderful glowing red Chinese lanterns, and laissee (or money) is given out in brilliant little red and gold laissee packets as a seasonal gift to children and the elderly! Dragon and Lion Dances abound, to scare off the evil spirits of the past and welcome in the New Chinese Year. And best of all, everyone says to each other Kung Hei Fat Choi! Which means…Happy Chinese New Year!
