From all of us at Mochi Magazine, we wish you and your family a Happy Chinese Lunar New Year! This year is the year of the Dragon, a symbol of ethnic identity and authority. While the year of the Rabbit was sweet and kind to us, we hope that the Dragon will bring us good change and strength. As you gather with your family for a traditional reunion dinner and exchange hongbao and presents, remember what this holiday is meant to be—a celebration of peace, happiness, success, and good health for everyone. So let go of those grudges, make your peace, and start the year anew. Here is a special message from President Obama to Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, wishing us peace, prosperity, and good health. In his message, he reminds us how much stronger our country is because of our diversity in culture and history. So while your family might not celebrate the Lunar New Year, know that it’s a celebration of good luck and prosperity for everyone.
