Rapping About a World at Risk

Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Welcome The Year of the Ox.

The Year of Ji Chou is the 4706th year in the Chinese Calendar.

The celebration of New Year’s Eve in the Chinese calendar will be observed tonight with several popular traditions meant to attract good fortune and health, prosperity, closer family ties, and peace in every household.

Festivals, parades, dragon and lion dances, fireworks, family gatherings, and visiting friends and relatives traditionally mark the celebration of the eve of the Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays.

We wish all prosperity, happiness and health during this Year of the Ox.
