The colors of the Lunar New Year are celebrated all over the world, it is the Year of the Dragon

Celebrations have begun in Asian countries and communities around the world to mark the beginning of the Lunar Year of the Dragon, one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac. They end on February 24th with the first full moon.

Precisely because they are based on lunar cycles, the holidays vary slightly each year, falling between late January and mid-February.

In Chinese, there are more than 100 idioms that contain the word “dragon,” a symbol that conveys mostly positive connotations such as excellence, power, prestige, royalty, and good fortune.

One of the main traditions of the Lunar New Year is giving red envelopes containing money as a sign of good luck.
