Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy Valentine's Day!


Cupids and Dragons -- Flowers and Fireworks! Thanks to the Lunar calendar, Chinese New Year falls on Valentine's Day this year!




Chinese New Year is a two week Spring festival celebrated for over 5,000 years in China. It is the longest and most important festivity in the Lunar Calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths, customs and traditions.

So, to all celebrating Valentine's Day and/or Chinese New Year on Sunday, wishing you a day and year of happiness, love and joy!
