1 out of 5 people in the world are Chinese and if there's a holiday that holds more significance than Christmas or the New Year for the Chinese is - Chinese New Year or the Lunar New Year (surprise, surprise) that is happening on the 5th of February this year. Aside from China, the festive occasion is also widely celebrated in Chinese-majority countries like Hong Kong and Singapore and they take Chinese New Year celebration to a whole new level. Immerse yourself in the streets of Chinatown lined-up with bright red lanterns or to the sound of the vigorous drumming of the lion dance that you're guaranteed not to miss. It will also no doubt extend beyond the public space into your workplace as well so let's embrace it! Here are some things you can expect as well as some fun ideas to implement in the office.
As we're approaching the final month of the year, some of us can't help but to be in a jovial mood as holidays are approaching.
