The Lunar New Year of 2022 has arrived and this year, we are celebrating the year of the tiger. Over the next couple of weeks, Houston will be buzzing with celebrations. So, here's what the annual holiday is all about. The first new moon of the lunar calendar begins on February 1st and celebrations continue until the first new moon appears. During this time, exciting dragon and lion dances, cultural dance troupe performances, fireworks, and gift-giving take place. So many food festivals also take place as well as large family dinners. In this article, we'll give you five ways to celebrate either virtually or in-person!
