Celebrate Lunar New Year with GO!

GO wishes you a joyful Year of the Dragon, with Fú (福) accompanying you all the way!

Lunar New Year festivities stand out as some of the most elaborate, festive, and celebratory traditional festivals in Chinese and other Asian communities, not only signifying a time for family reunions but also representing a significant cultural celebration and a tradition of bestowing blessings for the upcoming year.

In the lead-up to the Lunar New Year, a pivotal custom involves bringing the character of Fú (福) into homes. The character Fú (福) carries profound and positive meanings, inspiring households to acquire or give out Lunar New Year decorations and items adorned with this character. These symbolic acts embody the bringing of good luck, happiness, and good fortune into one's home.

Recognizing the importance of the Fú (福), GO is taking this opportunity to convey our warmest New Year wishes to all those celebrating. GO wishes you a joyful Year of the Dragon, with Fú (good luck) accompanying you all the way!

GO wishes you and your loved ones a fortune-filled Lunar New Year!
