! Happy Lunar New Year 2023 – Year of the Rabbit !

This year, the Lunar New Year started on January 22 and will last until February 1 and this Lunar New Year marks the beginning of the Year of the Rabbit according to the Chinese zodiac, which assigns different animals to years over a 12-year cycle.

The rabbit is the fourth animal in the Chinese zodiac and symbolises grace, beauty, mercy and good luck. Rabbits are also associated with the moon, because of the mythical Jade Rabbit who lives there.

Today the Lunar New Year is celebrated worldwide with a variety of traditions. In China, families typically gather together for a 16-day celebration full of feasting, fireworks and gift-giving. Traditional gifts include hongbao, or “red envelopes,” which are typically stuffed with cash. The holiday also sees the largest annual human migration on Earth, during which billions of people worldwide travel to their ancestral homes to celebrate with family.

Longevity, peace and prosperity to all Taggers, make it a hopping good one packed with an abundance of good luck, grace and beautiful people and moments.
