The year of the Ox represents hard work, strength, and this year means if you work hard, you’ll accomplish BIG things!

What better way to celebrate the Chinese New Year, and bring in big accomplishments and enjoy the fruits of your labor?

The Chinese zodiac calendar is on a 12-year cycle with each year having their own animal representative. This year, it’s the Ox.

So how do you know what your Chinese zodiac animal is?

If you were born in 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, or 2021, then you, my friends, are an Ox!

How To Celebrate Chinese New Year

The Chinese believe that no matter where you are, all family should be together. If a family member can’t be there, especially now during COVID, they leave a seat empty to honor you.

Food is most definitely one of the most important things to consider if you’d like to celebrate the new year, along with decorations and blessings that are said and hoped to bring in good fortune for the year.

Among some of the most common dishes eaten in households when celebrating Chinese New Year?

Egg Rolls, Dumplings and Noodles. Yum!

And today’s recipe includes making Weed Spring Rolls. Crispy and Cannabis-y, perfect for feelings the vibes of a new year to come.


How To Decorate For Chinese New Year

Well, you most definitely want good fortune this year, right?

Chinese people decorate their homes with positive words like ‘fu’ which means happiness and good fortune.

Mandarin oranges and even Kumquats are signs of auspicious good fortune and luck.

Lastly, if you’re really feeling the vibe and want to celebrate – lanterns are the way to go! I always love the way they look as they float into the sky.

The lantern festival comes at the end of the Chinese New year celebrations and is said to symbolize reunions, family, and freedom.
