Hey everyone! It’s February of 2019, and that means the Chinese New Year (also called the Spring Festival) is here again, this year being the Year of the Pig.

Every year I make a point of putting up my Chinese New Year decorations to ring in the New Year. As I work in China, I only see my family in the USA when I travel home during the Spring Festival break, and putting up the decorations helps me remember the importance of family and how important it is to cherish the time we have together.

I’d also like to share this Chinese New Year cheer with all of you, so I’ve put together a short video with a few pointers on how to buy and put up some simple yet important decorations for the Chinese New Year. I hope you enjoy watching it and feel inspired to put up decorations of your own!

If you’re interested in checking out some other content on the Chinese New Year or about Chinese traditions and the New Year, I’ll list a few links below:
