Happy Lunar New Year and we wish you all happiness, health, and prosperity. To celebrate the Lunar New Year, we hosted a red pocket lantern DIY session. Did you know that people hang red lanterns during the Lunar New Year to symbolize happiness and drive out any bad luck? It was nice to see everyone at our virtual event, and don’t worry if you missed our DIY session this time, you can always find tutorials on Youtube!
If you make these lanterns, please share them with us by tagging @gecliving.
Cheers, Danika and Julie
