Celebrating Lunar New Year at Nhinja Sushi and a New Book: Embracing Tradition and Renewal

by Mary Nhin 08 Feb 2024 0 Comments

On February 11, 2024, our restaurants, Nhinja Sushi will celebrate the Lunar New Year with lion dances and festivities at all five locations in the Oklahoma City metro. The Lunar New Year is a time of great joy and reflection. It's a moment for families to come together and look ahead with hope and optimism. Across generations, this celebration serves as a reminder of the importance of tradition, resilience, and community.

As the Lunar New Year approaches, communities around the world are preparing to usher in the Year of the Dragon. This vibrant and culturally significant festival, also known as Chinese New Year, marks a time of reflection, celebration, and renewal for millions of people of East Asian descent and beyond.

Rooted in centuries-old traditions, the Lunar New Year holds great significance for families and communities worldwide. It symbolizes the opportunity for a fresh start. From the bustling streets of Shanghai to the vibrant neighborhoods of San Francisco, the spirit of the Lunar New Year resonates deeply, fostering a sense of unity and shared heritage among diverse cultures.

Throughout the festivities, symbolic rituals and customs abound, each carrying its own rich meaning. From the iconic lion and dragon dances to the exchange of red envelopes (hongbao) symbolizing good fortune, every aspect of the Lunar New Year is steeped in tradition and symbolism. Food plays a central role, with elaborate feasts featuring dumplings, fish, and other dishes believed to bring prosperity and happiness in the year ahead.

As we welcome the Year of the Dragon, I would love for us to embrace the spirit of the Lunar New Year and the values it embodies. I hope this occasion inspires us to cherish our cultural heritage, spread diversity, and embrace the possibilities of the year ahead. We invite you to join us in celebrating with our food and one of the lion dances we’re hosting. I will also have signed copies of my new children’s book, Ninja Life Hacks Lunar New Year, available for purchase at the event. My goal in writing this important book is to help children develop acceptance and understanding of other cultures.

Nhinja Sushi is a local sushi and Chinese restaurant chain founded by my husband and me. We have five locations in Yukon, Edmond, Oklahoma City, and Moore. Nhinja Sushi was created for families by a family. Raising three young boys of our own, we understand the demands on your time and the importance of having a well balanced, nutritious meal.
