Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Vietnamese New Year to all our families who celebrate
新年快乐 / 新年快樂
This New Year festival is celebrated by one fifth of the world’s population, celebrated in China, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Macau and nine other Asian countries. It isa very old custom is to name the years by one of 12 animals in their zodiac cycle. For example, 2016 is a year of the Monkey. Many Chinese still believe in astrology and other New Year superstitions. 2016 is the year of the Monkey
People focus on priorities: making amends, reconciling with people, avoiding offence, and re-establishing old ties. They buy and wear new clothes, give gifts, and clean house.
To all our families who celebrate we hope all your New Year dreams come true! I wish you and your families good health, wealth and luck for the forthcoming year of the Monkey!
