Happy Lunar New Year 2023
January 22nd marks the 2nd new moon after the winter solstice.
For many cultures in our city, and for nearly 2 billion people worldwide, this is Lunar New Year.
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2023 is the year of the Rabbit. Astrologers say Rabbits symbolize grace, beauty, mercy and good luck. People born in the
Year of the Rabbit are said to be peaceful, intelligent, and tenacious.
The Officer in Charge of Richmond RCMP, Chief Superintendent Dave Chauhan, wishes everyone
good health and
good fortune, and
may everything go your way for the New Year.
In Simplified Chinese, these wishes translate as follows:
- Good fortune = 恭喜发财 Gōng-xǐ-fā-cái
- Good health = 身体健康 Shēntǐ-jiànkāng
- May everything go your way = 万事如意 Wànshì-rúyì
In Traditional Chinese, they translate as:
- Good fortune = 恭喜發財 Gong hay fat choi
- Good health = 身體健康 Sun taai gin hong
- May everything go your way = 萬事如意 Maan see yu yee
