Celebrate Chinese New Year in Cayucos


On February 10, 2013, join Sherry Sim to ring in the “Year of the Snake' @ Sims & Company in Cayucos. Sim, a resident of Cayucos is of Chinese descent, shares that “This is a happy time for me to celebrate my culture and bring the community together to enjoy the festivity and indulge in some homemade treats”.


Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year and Spring Festival, is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese calendar that’s celebrated over 15 days by Chinese populations in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, and Chinatowns worldwide.  It is the time to embrace longevity, wealth and prosperity, and eliminate any negative chi from the past.


Regional customs and traditions vary. In addition to getting new decorations, food and clothing, most families will clean their homes thoroughly to sweep away any ill-fortune, and make way for incoming luck. The coming 2013 Year of the Black Water Snake is portrayed as one that’s blessed with good luck, and hopefully, a year of prosperity and peace.


In addition to Asian hors ‘deouvres and snacks, you will be treated to special performances by the Cal-Poly Lion Dancers (http://calpolyldt.webs.com/main.html). The Cal Poly Lion Dance Team is a 56 year old non-profit organization whose purpose is to entertain and educate the people of the central coast about lion dance. The team is composed of Cal Poly and Cuesta students who have taken the time and effort to learn this ancient art. They have performed in weddings, restaurants, schools of all levels, parties and festivals. The Lion in Chinese New Year is considered a symbol of good luck. Many businesses request a traditional Lion Dance performance so that they can be blessed with fortune. The standard blessing for Lion Dance involves licking the bad spirits away from the entrance, entering to bless the cash registers and paying respects to Buddha. The Lion then eats a lucky vegetable and throws it back out to symbolize fortune and a new beginning for the New Year.
