Happy Chinese New Year to everyone celebrating the Year of the Rat, including our Chinese customers and staff at our Hangzhou, China office. To celebrate the Chinese New Year (also known as the Spring Festival), will be decorating our UK office with authentic Chinese decorations as well as some very tasty Chinese goodies in the staff kitchen.

Did you know…. showering is forbidden on New Year’s Day and sweeping & throwing out the rubbish bin isn’t allowed before the 5th. This is to make sure you don’t wash away the good luck, however, there is a day before the Spring Festival dedicated to cleaning. This day is to sweep the bad luck away and make room for the good.

On the other hand, there’s a day before the Spring Festival dedicated to cleaning.

What’s your Chinese zodiac sign? Have a fantastic new year, or as they say in China, 新年快乐 (Xīnnián kuàilè).
