What is the Lunar New Year?

Lunar New Year, or to some — Chinese Lunar New Year or Spring Festival — is about luck, health, and reuniting with family. This year, Lunar New Year will fall on Tuesday, February 1st, 2022. 2022 is the year of the tiger, so you will see several card designs featuring tiger illustrations. Red for good fortune and happiness together with gold for wealth are the auspicious colors of the New Year. The holiday is called the Lunar New Year because it marks the first new moon of the lunisolar calendars traditional to many east Asian countries including China, South Korea, and Vietnam, which are regulated by the cycles of the moon and sun. Lunar New Year is a repeating 12-year cycle of animal signs and their ascribed attributes, based on the lunar calendar. In order, the zodiac animals are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig. Fortune, happiness, and health are the three overarching themes of the Lunar New Year. Creating a striking Lunar New Year greeting card is a great way to wish family members, friends, loved ones, and business partners good fortune and prosperity.
