Happy New Year! Gung Hay Fat Choy is the greeting and it means wishing you happiness and prosperity.
The Chinese New Year celebration will officially begin tomorrow, January 29 and runs through February 12. It's the year of the Dog. Those born in dog years (1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006) tend to be loyal, kind and generous. They will work to right wrongs and are able to keep secrets.
There are different rituals each day with the final day being the Lantern Festival. This day is the first full moon of the the New Year and marks the end of the New Year Celebration.
