The Lunar New Year for 2024 will fall on Saturday, February 10th, entering the Year of the Dragon. In Chinese astrology, each year is associated with an earth element and an animal sign. 2024 will be the Year of the Wood Dragon. The dragon is considered to be one of the most powerful and luckiest animals in the Chinese zodiac. As a way of inviting prosperity and luck, friends and family often gift small items like money or food as tokens of appreciation and well-wishes.
The “Lucky Red Envelope” filled with fresh, crisp, new bills is the most well-known gift of Lunar New Year, but we rounded up some other fun gifts that honor the tradition of passing best wishes for happiness and good fortune (oh, and we have an amazing Lucky Red Envelope for you, too).
