The Year Of The Rat

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Lunar New Year marks a season of renewal, reflection and joy, as millions of Asians around the world welcome the Year of the Rat. The Lunar New Year is a major holiday in China, especially among Han, Tibetan and Mongolian people, similar to Lunar New Year celebrations in China’s neighbours, including Korea, Vietnam, Mongolia. 

“As a new year of the Rat begins, we rededicate ourselves to honouring our heritage and lifting up our immigrant communities,” said Nancy Pelosi.

Together with our Asian communities, we can work to build a future of hope, opportunity and peace all around the world.  To all those celebrating, I offer my deepest wishes for a healthy, prosperous and meaningful Lunar New Year.
