Gong Hey Fat Choy! This year is the year of the Rooster, and Chinese New Year celebrations kick off on Saturday, January 28th, continuing for 7 days. We’re celebrating with a Rooster Bento Lunch to kick off the start of the festivities.
Every 12 years is a Rooster year. The Rooster ranks tenth among the 12 animals in the 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle. A year of the Rooster always follows a Monkey year (which follows a Sheep year). As Metro Vancouver is a super multi-cultural region, there is no shortage of fun, cultural experiences to take part in this time of year.
Today’s Rooster Bento Lunch consists of a Peanut Butter and Jelly sammie with carrot and red pepper accents, Chicago Mix popcorn, a kiwi and some cherry tomatoes. All packed in our Easy Lunch Boxes.
