Happy New Year. The Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festival on the Chinese lunar calendar. Despite often being known as ‘Chinese’ New Year the annual celebration is recognized across Asia and in many parts of the world with red envelopes, dragon dances and fireworks. 2013 will usher in the year of the snake, the sixth of 12 animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. People born in the Year of the Snake are reputed to be thoughtful and wise and to approach problems rationally and logically, seldom instinctively. Conveniently, the serpentine theme coincides with a feral fashion moment.
恭喜发财! 新年快樂! 新年快乐! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!
