Vaughan Welcomes the Year of the Dog!
Lunar New Year is a vibrant cultural holiday that commemorates the beginning of a new Asian calendar and is held in late January or early February every year. It is also known as the Spring Festival or the Chinese New Year. This 15-day festivity is observed with a variety of traditions from thoroughly cleaning the house to bring good luck to exchanging red money envelopes to encourage prosperity – it is a time to welcome new beginnings, fortune and well-being. For me, it is a special occasion because I have the opportunity to spend quality time with my family as well as the Vaughan community.
