The Year of The Ox
Happy New Year!
This year, the Chinese New Year celebrations began Friday, February 12th, welcoming in the Year of the Ox. In China, celebrations of the New Year last for fifteen days and it is one of the biggest holidays of the year.
2021: The Year of the Ox
Each animal of the Chinese New Year has certain characteristics. The Ox is said to be an animal of great determination, commitment, and persistence. They are willing to work hard without demanding praise or recognition. The Ox is very honest and kind and is a strong leader. After the intense, fast-paced Year of the Rat, the Year of the Ox is a time of stability and nourishment. This year is a time to practice patience and focused effort towards your goals.
RED ENVELOPE GIFTS
During the two weeks of celebration during Chinese New Year, families often gift children red envelops with money or chocolate treats. We invite you to reverse that tradition by giving a family member a gift of your character and kindness.
Choose the animal that best fits the gift you'd like to give to someone special!
