Today is Lunar New Year, a holiday that is celebrate not only in Chinese culture, but also in Vietnamese, Thai, Filipino, and other East/Southeast Asian countries in the world. The date falls on February 1st this year, but it changes every year depending on the Lunar calendar.
I already celebrated it with a nice meal with family this past weekend (i.e. hot pot) and am otherwise working on this day. While it would be nice to have a break from work to rest and celebrate my culture, I otherwise appreciate this new year in Eastern culture and hope that it’s a lot better from what I’ve experienced so far in 2022 (i.e. COVID).
Wishing you a wonderful Lunar New Year and prosperity for the rest of 2022! 🙂
