Celebrate Chinese New Year With Us
Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is one of China’s most important holidays and now a global cultural event. Celebrations are an explosion of light and sound and it is a festivity-filled time of joy and family observed around the world.
On January 25th, 2020, the Year Of The Rat commences. The Rat is the first animal on the Chinese calendar, marking the beginning of a new astral cycle consisting of 12 animals. The Rat, in Chinese culture, is seen as a sign of wealth and surplus and of new beginnings.
The Chinese New Year officially lasts for two weeks and we will be observing it from January 22Th through February 5 Th. It is with great pride that we honor this new cycle of life, prosperity and tradition and we can’t wait to unveil all of the limited edition product, exciting experiences and gifts we will be offering to our Chinese customers.
