Elizabeth Celebrates the Chinese New Year – 綠黨恭祝大家春節快樂

On Saturday, January 28th, 2017 in Press Releases

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Today marks the first day of festivities for the Chinese New Year. Elizabeth May, MP (Saanich-Gulf Islands) joins in the celebration by wishing all Canadians a year of prosperity and peace.

The new year, also known as the Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes every year. The holiday has more than 4,000 years of history and is the grandest annual event for Chinese people.

“Today we take time to acknowledge the accomplishments and contributions of Chinese-Canadians and the role their vibrant culture plays in shaping our country. May the year of the Rooster bring happiness and prosperity to all,” May said.
