 Chinese-New-Year-Monkey-2016-

Chinese New Year is February 8th this year and marks the start of Spring according to the Chinese lunar calendar. So say goodbye to the Goat and hello to the Monkey!

Because it is a time of renewal and spirited celebration, Chinese New Year is a great holiday for a gathering. There are some traditional activities that go along with a CNY celebration, making it especially fun for families to celebrate.

 

  • Chopsticks for Chinese new yearDecorate your house with lanterns. Paper lanterns are sweet and festive reminders of the round, glowing moon.

 

  • Give red envelopes. Brightly decorated red envelopes are traditionally filled with a bit of ‘good-luck’ money and given to the youngest generation to wish them prosperity. (Red envelopes are also great for enclosing any kind of cash tip, whether its given at Chinese New Year or not.)

 

  • In lieu of giving money, kids will be delighted to receive something from our stock of Chinese New Year kids’ items, whether it’s a notebook, pencils, dragon puppet on a stick, or CNY-themed stickers!

 

  • Eat long-life noodles with a set of our festive chopsticks!

 

  • Chinese new year displayBring financial prosperity to your home or business by placing our good luck coins in lucky places, like in your wallet, in or on a cash register (if you own a business) or with your financial papers!

 

  • Wear one of our Chinese hats and ring in the new year or attend a dragon dance with a Chinese drum! We also carry dragon masks on sticks, which make excellent Chinese New Year party favors!

 

  • Decorate your Chinese New Year feast with themed centerpieces, cutouts, and tissue dragons!

 

  • We have supplies to make your own Chinese New Year cards, including red and gold paper and decorative supplies, and monkey stickers!
