The Lunar New Year begins today Feb. 1, 2022, and is bringing us into the Year of the Tiger.

Coinciding with the new moon in Aquarius, the New Year gives us a double dose of fresh vibes that will aid us in severing ties with everything — and every ex — that can’t serve our future selves.

In mainland China, official celebrations last for seven days as a public holiday.

The cycle repeats every 12 years, and 2022 is the Year of the Tiger.

“The tiger is commonly associated with something like bravery, courage, and strength,”.

Why is Lunar New Year important?

The Lunar New Year is the most important social and economic holiday for billions of people around the world.

The holiday is tied to the lunar-solar Chinese calendar and was originally observed as a time to honor households and ancestors.

The Chinese Zodiac, a system that has existed in Chinese culture for more than 2,000 years, dictates which animal represents a given year.

What is the lucky color of the year 2022?

Cerulean blue, fiery red, mint green, and imperial yellow are the lucky colors for 2022.
