Lunar New Year: Year of the Rabbit

by Jan 16, 2023

Do you know what I love? I love to celebrate things. It doesn’t matter what that thing is; I participate if it’s a celebration. Why? Because I honestly believe that’s the meaning of life. That’s what we’re here to do and to make the most of our limited time on this planet. Just because we turned the page on January’s calendar, took down our tree, and made our resolutions doesn’t mean the earth stopped spinning. And now we are about to celebrate the Lunar New year. How will you celebrate this year?

What is the Lunar New Year?

The Lunar New Year is celebrated by cultures that recognize a moon-based calendar system. Many eastern cultures, including China and other areas of Southeast Asia, base their New year on the moon rather than the sun like the western calendar. The popular celebration of the Lunar New Year comes primarily from China, including the zodiac, which assigns animals to each year in a twelve-year cycle.

Year of the Rabbit

2023 is the year of the Rabbit. People born after the Lunar New Year in 2023, 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, and so on reflect the traits of Rabbit years, much like we assign specific characteristics in the western zodiac. I was born in the year of the Rabbit, which means this year will truly be my year. (Teona is an Ox and her last ox year was 2021. The next won’t be until 2033.)

The Rabbit is associated with longevity, peace, and prosperity, and this year will be filled with hope. People born under this sign, like me, are known for being vigilant, witty, and quick-minded. I suppose I better work on those things.

Lunar New Year Celebration Ideas

Do you want to celebrate the Lunar New Year at home? The actual date of the Lunar New Year is January 22nd, which is on a Sunday this year. The specific customs vary based on the culture, but it’s common to decorate in red and gold, eat with family, give red-envelop gifts, and watch the dragon and lion dances.

How to Have the Rabbit Spirit All Year Long

We’ll be in the year of the Rabbit until the Dragon enters on February 10th, 2024. So how do you have that rabbit energy all year long? It’s important to note that the animals in the zodiac are given attributes based on the feng shui elements, and 2023 is a water rabbit year. Rabbits represent the moon, which influences the water across the earth so embrace this lunar and water energy when making plans.
