Oakland, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2006
For Asian Americans, the Lunar New Year is one of the most important holidays of the year. Chinese New Year, Vietnamese New Year (Tet), Korean New Year (Sol-Nal), and Tibetan New Year (Losar) follow many of the same customs dating back thousands of years.
This year family and friends can share the holiday joy in a brand-new way, by sending unique New Year cards and Chinese Zodiac cards from Chopsticks, Please at http://www.chopsticksplease.com/lunar.html.
Since the lunar calendar is based on the cycles of the moon, Lunar New Year officially begins on January 29, when the first new moon appears. The festival ends with the full moon, fifteen days later, on February 13, 2006.
This year's celebration ushers in the Year of the Dog. Those born under this sign are extremely loyal, honest, and keep secrets really well. You can salute the Dogs in your life (as well as the Hares, Tigers, and Horses) with gorgeous Chinese Zodiac cards from ChopsticksPlease.com. Chopsticks, Please is also a great source of Chinese birthday cards for Asian Americans.
The Lunar New Year symbolizes renewal and a fresh start. It brings families together with traditional food, festive decorations, and hopes for good luck in the coming year. Add to the fun by sending festive cards from Chopsticks, Please.
