Macy’s Celebrates Lunar New Year

With its centuries-old origins, the Lunar New Year festival is celebrated traditionally in China and other Asian countries. Each New Year is observed according to the characteristics of one of the 12 zodiac animals: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Based on the lunar calendar, the event typically begins with the new moon and ends on the first full moon, 15 days later. Since the cycles of the moon vary each year, the dates of the festival can land between the end of January and the end of February. It’s a time to feast with family members and honor ancestors.

As millions of people all over the world celebrate the Lunar New Year to ring in the Year of the Pig, help Macy’s mark the occasion by joining us for in-store festivities such as live lion dance performances and other fun surprises!
