The Lunar New Year marks the first new moon of the lunar calendar and is derived from 12 full cycles of the moon. It is celebrated by many Asian communities including Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese. There are 12 Chinese zodiac animals and one is associated with each 12-year cycle. This year’s celebration begins on February 1, 2022—the Year of The Tiger.
Celebrate the Year of Tiger with wishes for good fortune and good health. Gather with family and friends to celebrate traditions during this season.
