Lunar New Year, which is often popularly referred to as Chinese New Year in the United States, begins on January 22 and ends on February 1 this year. It’s the Year of the Rabbit, the fourth animal out of 12 in the Chinese zodiac. Those born under this sign are said to have a noble and elegant manner and are seen as pure and lucky. Asian communities usually observe the holiday with family gatherings, traditional lion and dragon dances, and gifts — typically red envelopes filled with money. But some may even go the extra mile to buy and give physical presents as another way to bring the festive season to life.
