We have made a list of a number of proactive measures to think about. 

Why is the Chinese new year special?

The Chinese new year is the most important traditional holiday in China. It is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Chinese new year celebrations traditionally ran from Chinese new year’s eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. It is also the occasion when many Chinese travel across the country to spend the holiday with their families. The Chinese new year has been called the largest annual human migration in the world.

2023 is the year of the rabbit

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2023 is the year of the rabbit.  People born in a year of the rabbit are said to be gentle, quiet, and alert as well as skillful, kind and very responsible. Sometimes reluctant to reveal their minds to others and having a tendency to escape reality, but always faithful to those around them.
