22 January 2020
Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, is one of China's oldest festivals and is celebrated by an estimated sixth of the global population. Celebrations for the Year of the Rat will begin on Saturday 25 January, the 1st day of the new lunar year, and end with the Lantern Festival on the 15th day. 

Historically, it was an occasion to celebrate the beginning of spring and to pray for blessing and peace in the upcoming year. These days, Chinese New Year is a time for families to reunite and to take part in traditions thought to bring good fortune for the next 12 months.

The firm will be marking the occasion with an Asian-inspired pop-up food menu on offer in our internal restaurant and a quiz for everyone across the business to get involved with, as well as taking the opportunity to recognise the importance of celebrating this significant occasion.

At Burges Salmon, ensuring diversity and inclusion is a firm-wide key strategic priority; we are very proud to celebrate key events across a variety of cultures and to support initiatives which promote diversity and inclusion.

Here at Burges Salmon, we’d like to wish you a happy Chinese New Year and prosperity for the year ahead.
