Welcoming the Year of the Horse - Gong Xi Fa Cai!


Chinese New Year is a busy time for exporters and importers alike as businesses in many Asian countries close during what is considered to be their longest and most important celebration. To avoid missed shipments, Pro QC works closely with clients and factories each year to accommodate requests. Chinese New Year is a lively spring festival that begins on the second new Moon after the Winter Solstice. This year, Chinese New Year was celebrated on January 31st. Celebrations usually include dragon dances, specialty food items, fireworks, lantern displays and quality time spent with family and friends. Legend has it that Buddha asked all the animals to meet him during this holiday. Twelve came, so Buddha named a year after each one. 2014 is considered to be a Year of the Horse. Predictions for this year include: "The Horse year is a time of fast victories, unexpected adventure, and surprising romance. It is an excellent year for travel, and the more far away and off the beaten path the better. Energy is high and production is rewarded. Decisive action, not procrastination, brings victory. But you have to act fast in a Horse year. If you are not 100% secure about a decision, then don't do it. Events move so quickly in a Horse year that you don't want to gallop off in the wrong direction."
