Lunar New Year, a.k.a. "Spring Festival," celebrates the start of spring in the Asian subtropics of the Northern Hemisphere, and also of the farming season in historically agricultural societies such as China, Korea or Vietnam, etc.  2024 is the Year of Dragon starting from Feb 10. 

It hatches new hopes, beats the drum for a renewed stream of hard work, and in return promises a rich harvest in autumn.

Dragon embodies passion, strength, creativity and freedom. Wish you and your family a very healthy, prosperous and lucky New Year!
