The BCGEU wishes our members and their families a very happy and prosperous Lunar New Year!
Celebrations have started around the world as we say goodbye to the Year of the Horse and welcome the Year of the Sheep/Goat.
The Year of the Sheep/Goat arrives on Thursday, February 19th , and it marks the start of a fifteen day festival and holiday. Roughly 1/6th of the world partakes in Lunar New Year festivities, which are marked by spending time with family , parades, dragon dances, reunions, gift exchanges, and community celebrations.
There are a number of Lunar New Year events and parades taking place around the province. Below is a small sampling of what's taking place – join in the festivities in your community!
