These are the decorations in the office to celebrate Chinese New Year. Our boss is Taiwanese and follows the tradition. He also gives out Ang Pao or Red Envelope to us employees for good luck. They contain money so we are always looking forward to receiving them. 🙂

Chinese people follows a different calendar. First day of the year is between January 21 and February 21, on the day of the first new moon: the darkest day.

Gong Xi Fa Cai means Wishing you a financially prosperous year.

Gong Xi Fa Cai everyone!
