Year of the Rat began January 25, 2020. Legend has it that a great race determined the order of the 12 zodiac animals. The wise and clever Rat was the first to finish. This Lunar New Year, we celebrate the Rat by retracing its journey and sharing its wisdom for success, happiness and prosperity. Lunar New Year is considered one of the most important holidays for the Asian population. While customs and traditions vary, many consider Lunar New Year as a new beginning and a time to express wishes for good fortune and prosperity throughout the year.
