Chinese New Year

Statement by Jim Karygiannis,

Member of Toronto City Council

 

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Chinese community on the occasion of Chinese New Year – The Year of the pig.

 

The Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is the most important festival in the Lunar Calendar.

 

To celebrate the occasion presents are purchased; homes are thoroughly cleaned to sweep away ill fortune and prepare the way for incoming good luck; then the homes are decorated with intricately-designed, red paper cut outs signifying happiness, wealth and longevity; traditional foods and delicacies are enjoyed.  Holiday customs also include fireworks displays and the giving and receiving of money in red paper envelopes.

 

Our city flourishes because of the diversity of people who have chosen to make Toronto their home. Toronto’s diverse communities share and celebrate their cultures and traditions with residents in every corner of our city.

 

As a city proud of its multiculturalism, each and every community plays a part in enhancing Toronto’s social and cultural landscape.

 

As you gather together to honour the centuries-old traditions of this festival, may health and prosperity be yours in the coming year. The New Year is a time of great hope, a time to look forward to the future and to follow new dreams.

 

May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family a Happy and Prosperous ChineseNew Year!Gung Hei Fat Choy!
