Let's Welcome the Year of the Horse!

Known to many as the Lunar New Year, this big occasion for all our fans who celebrate this holiday from across the globe is fast approaching! In Chinese beliefs, each year in a 12-year cycle is related to a particular animal, and this incoming year will be the Year of the Horse!

People belonging to the Horse zodiac are believed to be energetic, good with money and ooze heaps of sex appeal! Do you think the stars below fit these characteristics?

With the festivities lasting for 15 days, there’s so much to see and do during the Lunar New Year observations! Here are some of our favorite traditions:

Gathering Red Envelopes

If you’re young and single, get ready to make a small fortune with red envelopes (usually containing money) from the elders. The intended meaning? For blessings, good luck, prosperity and protection against evil spirits!

Igniting Those Firecrackers

Back in the olden days, people believed the ruckus caused by firecrackers drive away the “notorious” Nian monster, rumored to eat little children. Since then, firecrackers have become one of the Lunar New Year’s best-loved traditions.

Decking Out in Red & Gold  Even Neon!

Bright colors should definitely be worn during this festive season, for it brings prosperity, luck and positivity in the New Year. So get those stunning clothes on and usher in the New Year with a great party!
