At Vancouver Premium Packaging we wish everyone a happy Lunar New Year 2022 and Spring Festival. May this year bring you and your family abundance of health, prosperity and happiness.

As we enter this Lunar New Year, we'd like to thank our loyal clients who have helped us grow and reach for even higher standards every day.

We'd like to join you in celebrating your success and congratulate you for a year of innovation and accomplishments as we move forward.

It's interesting to know that the Lunar New Year is also known as Spring Festival, Chinese New Year, Tet in Vietnamese and Seollal for Korean. Since June 1, 2016 this day is celebrated as an official Holiday in Canada. The exact day for the start of the Lunar New Year will change every year in relation to the Gregorian calendar. In 2022 that first day of the New Lunar Year will start on Jan 31. It means, starting on Feb 1st, twelve rounds of full moons will circle the earth until the next year.

This Joyous Occasion is marked and celebrated in Canada in various ways:

In many cities and provinces parades are organized and streets are lined up with decorations, lanterns, and Asian food samples.

Lion or Dragon Dance is a traditional performance that is loved by all. A puppet of a dragon or a lion is made in red, gold, green and other colors. Performers wearing the puppet or holding it up on a stick will walk it through the town. It is accompanied by beating drums, cymbals and gongs while a row of performers dance the dragon down the path; they might stop by different establishments for good luck. The elaborate and colorful costumes bring joy and happiness to the hearts of spectators, and a touch of tradition to many, especially the Asian folks.

In traditional sense, this dragon or lion gets rid of devil and brings good luck. We can all use some more good luck and less devil! The Chinese New Year is celebrated for 15 days.

But perhaps the most cherished custom during the celebrations around the New Lunar Year is that at this time there are many family visits.. Elderly is honored by younger generation who will be visiting and showing respect, and then the celebration is completed with gift exchange.
