BEST BUY WANTS YOU TO CELEBRATE “LUNAR NEW YEAR” WITH THEIR E- GIFT CARDS @BestBuyWOLF #bbylunarnewyear

21 Dec

Best Buy supports events which they believe are of importance to employees, customers, and communities. The upcoming Lunar New Year is one of those important celebrations.

For Asians all around the world, including Asian-Americans, Lunar New Year not only celebrates the beginning of the year but also the ending of winter and the anticipated arrival of spring. It is one of the most important holidays celebrated in countries such as China, Tibet, Korea, and Vietnam.

This upcoming year, Lunar New Year, which is based on the phases of the moon, falls on January 31st 2014 of our Gregorian calendar. Best Buy is helping celebrate the event with an Asian-inspired eGiftcard, available for purchase or gifting from BestBuy.com. Scroll to the right of the following link until you see the red giftcard with the two Koi fish: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Electronics/Gift-Cards/cat09000.c?id=cat09000&ref=184&loc=01.

E-Gift Cards

FIREWORKS AND FAMILY FEASTS:
At Chinese New Year celebrations people wear red clothes, decorate with poems on red paper, and give children “lucky money” in red envelopes. Red symbolizes fire, which according to legend can drive away bad luck. The fireworks that shower the festivities are rooted in a similar ancient custom.

HOW TO SAY HAPPY NEW YEAR IN CHINESE AND CANTONESE:

Gong Xi Fa Cai:
Pronounced “gong zee fah cai,” gong xi means “congratulations” and is also a way to wish one joy. Fa cai is to become rich or make money. In essence, you are wishing one joy and prosperity in the new year. Business owners and workmates use gong xi fa cai as the usual way to say “happy new year” in Chinese.

Xin Nian Kuai Le:
Pronounced “zeen neean kwai luh,” kuai le means “happy” or “joyous” and xin nian means “new year.” Xin nian kuai le is a great way to say happy new year in Chinese to friends without using a reference to money.

Gong Hey Fat Choy in Cantonese is the equivalent of gong xi fa cai in Mandarin, or simply “congratulations and prosperity.”

Try replying with “Hong Bao Na Lai”. It means “red envelope please”.

ASIAN-INSPIRED BEST BUY E-GIFT CARDS:
Now, Best Buy is helping celebrate the event with an Asian-inspired eGiftcard available for purchase or gifting from BestBuy.com. It’s a red gift card that has that two Koi fish designed in gold. It may not be an actual envelope, but it is pretty similar since they both contain “lucky money”. So instead of giving out a red envelope this year, why not gift them with this red gift card from Best Buy instead? You can purchase these red GC’s over here: E-Gift Cards. You’ll see a link that says “Shop for e-gift cards”. Just click that and when you see the e-gift card designs, just scroll to the right until you see those two koi fish! These Best Buy E-Gift Cards will make your recipients very happy this coming New Year!
