Happy New Year Cantonese Greeting
ChasingART is celebrating Lunar New Year 2022 with Hu Zaobin, who was an early 20th-century Chinese painter, famous for painting tigers.
Today on February 1, 2022, The Lunar New Year of the Tiger is celebrated worldwide by almost two billion people. It is a huge celebration that can go on for more than two weeks. History.com notes that “China’s Lunar New Year is known as the Spring Festival or Chūnjié in Mandarin, while Koreans call it Seollal and Vietnamese refer to it as Tết.
According to ChineseNetYear.net, “Tigers are courageous and active people who love a good challenge and adventure in life. Like their eponymous zodiac animal, people born in years of the Tiger are vigorous and ambitious, daring and courageous, enthusiastic and generous, self-confident with a sense of justice and a commitment to help others for the greater good.”
