There are a few traditions that go hand-in-hand with the Lunar New Year, like cleaning 10 days before the celebration, or not cutting your hair until after.

There’s something about the Lunar New Year that I’ve always liked. It’s something about the horoscopes, the food and the idea of another celebration that makes me excited.
Kingsway Mall’s virtual celebration of the Lunar New Year on February 6 & 7 is filled with special performances and crafts. The mall partnered up with the Edmonton Chinese Bilingual Education Association and the Chinese Graduates Association of Alberta to ring in the year of the ox.
“This year the community has really come together to make sure that not only Edmontonians, but also their friends and family from around the world are able to join in with a unique program of live performances and activities online,” says Bo Tarasenko, marketing manager at Kingsway Mall.
The event features lion dancing, crafts, traditional music, cooking classes, online games and more. You’ll be able to celebrate with your family, no matter where they are, although you may have to collect the red envelopes later.
