Goway Celebrates Year of the DragonGoway Travel celebrated the start of the Year of the Dragon in style this week, decorating its offices with red lanterns, hanging paper dragons and bright lights as its staff snacked on traditional dumplings, spring rolls and various sweets. There was even a prize for a hand-made origami dragon as well as gold coins offered for good luck. Diane Molzan, general manager of Asia by Goway, said of the celebration: “I have read recently that the Year of the Dragon is considered to be the luckiest of the Chinese Zodiac so what better reason to celebrate. It’s fantastic to have our entire office come out to join in on our festivities. It reminds us that we are a truly global company.” Chinese New year, which traditionally lasts for 15 days, is the longest and most important Chinese holidays beginning on the first day of the month in the Chinese calendar. Also known as the Lunar New Year, this holiday is celebrated in other Asian countries, such as Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Korea among others. It is a special occasion where families reunite, give gifts, light incense and generally just have a good time watching street festivals and firework shows. And Goway is wishing everyone a Happy New Year? Sun Nin Fai Lo!
