The Lunar New Year is celebrated by many Asian countries and begins with the first new moon of the lunar calendar and ends 15 days later on the first full moon of the lunar calendar. This holiday is one of the most important celebrations of the year for those who observe it.
Since the lunar calendar is based on the moon’s cycles, the dates of the celebration vary slightly from year to year. The Lunar New Year traditionally includes family gatherings, religious ceremonies, fireworks, parades, and food. The occasion is also known as the Spring Festival, and an animal is associated with each New Year. The animals rotate and repeat according to a fixed cycle.
You can celebrate the Lunar New Year in the office by learning more about the different cultures that observe it. Share music, food, decor, and customs from different countries and cultures, and learn about the rich history of the celebrations.
This may be a great time to do some cleaning and organizing in the office or introduce some new decor or plants to the space. You can even have some fun with it and encourage everyone to wear a new outfit to work for a special feast together to launch into the new Lunar year refreshed and renewed.
