Lunar New Year LUNA SEE

To celebrate the 2022 Lunar/Chinese New Year that began on Feb. 1, I put together a playlist and some brief information about this annual festival…you’ll need to supply your own fireworks…It’s the year of el tigre…the tiger…

At the end of this post, you'll find a playlist of all songs.

Lunar New Year: The Year of the Tiger 2022 explained

Across China and the Asian diaspora, the holiday marks more than just the beginning of a new calendar year...the Lunar New Year is seen as a time of reunion and rebirth, marking the end of winter and the start of spring.

According to one legend, a monster would emerge from under the Earth at the start of every year and eat villagers. Since the monster, called Nian (Chinese for "year") was afraid of bright lights, loud noises and the color red, they were used to exile the beast -- and have all become associated with the holiday.
