Xīnnián kuàilè! "New Year Happiness"
in Chinese from the event team to all GASRians!
 
Here are other Lunar New Year phrases from neighbouring countries!
 
  • Chúc mừng năm mới - Vietnamese
  • Sa was dee pee mai - Thai
  • Selamat tahun Baru - Malaysian/Indonesian
  • Saehae bok mani badeuseyo - Korean
  • Manigong Bagong Taon - Philippine

As many of you may know, today is that start of the Lunar New Year. We’d like you all to come celebrate with us in an event that everyone can take part in!

Lunar New Year- often referred to as “Chinese New Year”- has been around for centuries. While it did originate in China, it is celebrated in many other Asian countries such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mauritius, and the Philippines.

Lunar New Year started as a way to honor deities as well as ancestors, families would have a variety of activities and food, all symbolic and important while celebrating the new year. Some of these traditions included setting off fireworks to scare away evil spirits, decorating everything in red to bring in the year with good luck, and even cleaning to appease the Gods that are coming down from heaven! This time of year was a reflection on how the people behaved and what they believed in the most. Chinese New Year usually begins with the new moon around the end of January and lasts around 15 days until the full moon arrives with the Festival of Lanterns.
 
The pig is the 12th Chinese Zodiac. In a majority Chinese folk legend, the pig was last due to his habit of oversleeping:
 
"Over the horizon, a loud exhausted oink sounded. The Pig waddled towards the finish line, pink skin caked in dense layers of dirt, sniffling snout pasted brown with mud.

Yet, the Pig moved at a surprisingly swift gait, little feet locked in a tiny cyclical gallop. The Jade Emperor gave the pig a sharp glance as he crossed the finish line. "How has one such as you who possesses such surprising speed fallen so far behind?" he asked.

The Pig snorted as er readied himself to speak. "Sorry, Exalted Jade Emperor - I was hungry and couldn't resist stopping to gobble something up. I felt sleepy after eating, and couldn't help myself."

The Jade Emperor smiled again as he peered down at the dirt covered Pig. The race had concluded. The Pig collapsed onto his side, lapsing back into sleep. Snorts that sounded like snores sounded from the Pig's rotund heaving form. The 12 animals of the Zodiac have been decided and so concluded the great race."

Go ahead and edit your post with your image(s)! They'll be more organized that way.

 

Good question! :fingerguns:
