Who doesn’t like the lavish celebrations Asian style? Living in the country of the many cultures, it is fascinating to me to learn and to share traditions and cultural celebrations every year. One of my favorites is the Chinese Lunar New Year.
Celebrated as a symbol of the end of winter and tribulations during the season of scarcity, Asian Lunar Year brings hope and the beginning of Spring both in Nature and within each person. The meaning is deep and truly revered by each person who comes from the rich cultures of tradition and belief into the living and breathing Natural and Ancestral forces.
The integral color of celebration is RED. The Chinese New Year is known for its Lion dances, fireworks, family gatherings, and yummy ethnic meals. Many take time to visit friends and relatives (拜年, bàinián), giving red envelopes with gifts, and decorating homes and gift offerings with duilian, couplets in Chinese poetry.
This year Chinese Lunar Year falls on February 19, 2015. There’s no denying the fact that many retailers would like to capture the spirit of this holiday for our Asian-American communities and offer something of value to them.
Best Buy has always been on the forefront of celebrations of cultural importance. This year, our favorite store has come up with a special design and offer to commemorate the Asian Lunar Year – a special Gift Card.
Look at the card and its design! I love it! It uses red, yellow and golden colors to honor and reflect upon the significance of the celebration – Chinese Lunar New Year. The inscription Happy New Year in both Chinese and English remind me of a duilian. And the shape of the card is vertical as well, representing the original shape of a duilian.
This coi adorned gift card would be a great gift for anybody!
