Chinese New Year 2016 – the Year of the Monkey

In China, the New Year falls in January or February, and is also known as the Spring Festival. In a celebration lasting 15 days, the Chinese see off the old year and welcome the new one. Many people save up all of their annual leave so that they can spend two weeks visiting family. Food plays an important role: filled dumplings and “nian gao”, a sweet rice cake, are traditional at this time of year.

There are 12 animal zodiac signs in China – 2016 will be the Year of the Monkey. People born under this sign are said to be humorous and quick-witted.

In addition to the zodiac signs, red lanterns and gold ornaments are popular as decorations. In China, red symbolises prosperity, which is why people give their relatives gifts of money in red envelopes. Sigel’s products for the Chinese New Year use traditional motifs and are bound to impress with their high-quality finishes, such as embossing.
