“The rabbit is a very strong symbol for peace.”

The Chinese Lunar New Year begins on Sunday and last for 15 days. The Year of the Rabbit represents empathy, compassion and reflection: “There needs to be a moment of introspection and thoughtfulness in being, in action, and for the intention of long-term success. You’re going to be much more conservative and reflective in your decision-making” says Prof. Lee. New Year celebrations will cause an estimated 2 billion trips in China alone – raising some concerns about COVID cases as China has recently experienced a surge in cases and a drop in restrictions.

It’s the Year of the Rabbit and, finally, we can all chill
