South Hackensack, NJ — January 27, 2016– February 8, 2016 will mark the beginning of The Year of The Monkey, the Asian Lunar New Year, one of the largest and most festive celebrations for the Asian American Community.
Celebrated by Asian American groups including Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean Americans, the Lunar New Year is an event where family and friends come together to wish each other happiness and pay respect to ancestors. Traditionally, the festivities start 22 days prior to the New Year and continue for 15 days afterwards. The Lunar New Year is represented by a cycle of 12 years, each denoted by a different animal. This year, the Year of the Monkey, is the ninth animal in the Chinese horoscope. According to Chinese astrology, people born in the year of the Monkey (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016) are strong-minded, creative, talented, and loving.
The Lunar New Year is celebrated with loved ones, lots of food, drums and gongs. Family members and friends gather at each other’s homes for visits to share large meals and gifts, as a sign of fortune. Families also visit temples for prayer and luck. According to tradition, Chinese and Vietnamese give children “red-envelopes” with good luck money for the New Year and Koreans offer newly minted money as a symbol of auspicious and fortuitous beginnings. Business people in the Asian communities also celebrate the holiday with colleagues and employees. During this celebration decorations are also significant. Red and gold are the primary colors as they symbolize good fortune.
