Chinese New Year, the celebration of the start of a new lunar year, began Feb. 1. Each year in the Chinese calendar is associated with one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac; 2022 is the Year of the Tiger. To celebrate, the Eng family of Orinda has lent a number of pieces traditionally used in the celebration to the Orinda Library. The display will remain up through February. Red lanterns are also traditional at this time of the year, and can be seen decorating various homes around the area.
The Eng Family of Orinda shared decorations with the community, on display at the Orinda Library.
Moraga Way residents celebrate Chinese New Year by hanging red lanterns from a front yard tree.
