Happy Lunar New Year!
Chinese New Year usually falls between January 21st and February 20th and this year we will be celebrating the Year of the Dog on February 16th. Traditionally Lunar New Year involves an explosion of light and sound; such as bell ringing, letting off firecrackers and traditional lion dancers – and of course, lots of food! Gifts are also exchanged throughout Chinese New Year – usually red envelopes containing money given to friends and family. Although the Chinese zodiac signs alternate every 12 years, this is the first year of the Earth Dog since 1958.
Year of the Dog
According to Asian astrology, your year of birth – and the animal this represents – determines a lot about your personality traits. Chinese people believe that because the dog is man’s best friend, they can understand the human’s spirit. The Chinese regard it as an auspicious animal. They believe if a dog enters your house, it symbolizes the coming of fortune. People born in the Year of the Dog are said to be loyal, responsible and clever, yet sensitive, stubborn and emotional. If you were born in 1958, 1970, 1982 or 1994 those traits could apply to you!
To celebrate the Lunar New Year we will be including a red envelope in all orders from February 1st until February 16th. The envelope will contain a special gift to say thank you for your continued support over the past and coming years.
We have lots of exciting projects this year, including the International Jing Fang Conference, but as always, our main focus is continuing to invest in the quality control of our herbal and acupuncture products, for the benefits of practitioners and patients.
We hope you have a successful and prosperous Year of the Dog, and we look forward to continuing to work together!
