  • Happy Lunar New Year!

    The Lunar New Year is celebrated by billions of people around the world. Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival, is the biggest holiday in Chinese culture. Like families during Christmas in the Western world, most Chinese travel home to be with family for the new year celebration.

    The date changes every year; this year, the Chinese New Year falls on Friday, February 12. It is a 15-day celebration, beginning on the first day of the new moon, and ending on the full moon. The celebration on the 15th day is called the Chinese Lantern Festival.

    While the rest of the world is in the early years of the third millennium, Chinese culture is in its fifth millennium! In Chinese astrology, every year is represented by an animal. In 2021, we ring in the Year of the Ox. Chinese New Year activities mainly include decorating, eating dinner with family on New Year's Eve, setting off firecrackers and fireworks, and giving red envelopes (usually containing money) and other gifts.

    To celebrate the Lunar New Year, Affinity Health Plan will be supporting the following community initiatives taking place in boroughs with dense Chinese populations:

    Affinity is also partnering with CAIPA (Chinese-American Independent Physician Association) and World Journal, a major media outlet, to host an on-line “Stay Positive, Fight the COVID” essay contest. The campaign aims to engage the community and raise health awareness about the pandemic.
