Gōng xǐ fā cái! Happy Chinese New Year!

Not having the best start to the New Year, that’s okay, you can celebrate again! It is almost time for the Chinese New Year celebrations to start but did you know that what many of us know as Chinese New Year is not just celebrated in China? In fact, many places in Asia will be ringing in the Lunar New Year.
China, Vietnam, Korea, Tibet, Mongolia, Malaysia, Okinawa, Singapore, Malaysia, Bali and even places in the Middle East and India traditionally celebrate. Unlike us here in Australia where we mainly just celebrate New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day- Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations start on the first day of the Lunar New Year and last for 15 days after! Each day has its own traditions behind this.
2022 marks the year of the Tiger in Chinese astrology, with the 1st of February this year being the start of the Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations. Tiger is a symbol of strength, exorcising evil spirits and being brave- something many of us may be feeling we need in the world now. Celebrations include the gifting of money in red envelopes, particularly from elders to children, fireworks, music and of course we cannot look past traditional foods. With the New Year traditionally celebrating the end of the Harvest, it is a time when family comes together, and it is reunion dinner. The foods and celebrations vary from place to place, but like many of us, it is a time to celebrate a new start.

Whether you are a business or an individual, understanding the Lunar New Year is ideal, especially in our multicultural country. With Chinese immigrants being a huge part of modern Australian history since the gold rush era- reaching out to your clients to celebrate well wishes is one way to connect with various Asian communities right here in Australia and overseas. So, if you are needing Chinese translation services, or any other language, to be able to wish people a Happy New Year- then get in touch today.

Interlingual wishes everybody 恭喜发财, 새해 복 많이 받으십시오, Chúc mừng năm mới and a Happy Lunar New Year, no matter what language you speak.
