In China, the Lunar New Year celebration starts on New Year’s Eve for 15 days till the Lantern Festival. This is a new beginning—”out with the old, in with the new”, a time to reunite with families and friends over good food, celebrate with fireworks and wish for a new year filled with prosperity and happiness.
This year will be different. We will celebrate in person with people whom we live with and virtually with other family members and friends.
The ox signifies hard work, honesty and positivity; characteristics we all need during this pandemic.
Ox is the second sign of the Chinese zodiac. It is said that the Jade Emperor wanted to celebrate his birthday by holding a race for his favorite animals. The first 12 animals to finish the race will become the symbols of the lunar calendar. The rat was clever and jumped on the back of an ox. Once they crossed the river, the rat quickly jumped off and raced to the finish line, thus coming first in the race. The ox came in second, beating the other animals to the finish line. The other 10 animals are the tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, roster, dog and pig.
