6 Festive Gifts to Celebrate the Lunar New Year

The Year of the Dragon represents luck and good fortune.

Chinese New Year commences on February 10, marking the new moon on the lunar calendar and ringing in a year represented by the dragon. The dragon, an auspicious creature, is the sole mythical creature of the zodiac, representing power, nobility, and success. Those seeking a shift this year, perhaps in opportunities and challenges, may be in favour. Traditionally, monetary gifts are placed in red envelopes–hóngbāo–for the Lunar New Year, with red symbolizing luck and prosperity for the following year.
