Year of the Rooster

Thursday, January 26, 2017


I'll admit I'm not always the best example of embracing Chinese culture, but Lunar New Year is a helpful reminder to keep tradition in mind. When I think of this holiday, I'm taken back to long weekends at my grandparents' house in Boston spent feasting over "lucky" dishes with family. In the past few years this tradition has slowed, with the passing of my grandmother and aging of the youngest generation. Though with the changing of family customs, there is a feeling of nostalgia during this holiday that still keeps us close despite the distance.

Chinese New Year has always been one of my favorite holidays, likely as a child because of the red envelopes (no shame). These days the red envelopes aren't so abundant, but the lifelong family traditions give the holiday its personal significance. I'm partnering with Coach to celebrate the new year with a pop of lucky red from their limited edition 1941 collection. Let this accessory be a bright reminder to value tradition and family as we celebrate our heritage.
