Celebrate the Lunar New Year with CXI

Ryan February 6th, 2018
Celebrate the Lunar New Year with CXI


It’s the year of the dog and Currency Exchange International is excited to celebrate the Lunar New Year again at select branches. Our branches at Citadel Outlets, The Shops at North Bridge, and Santa Monica Place will be participating in the annual Red Envelope Giveaway.

Unlike your traditional New Year’s celebration, this national holiday in China begins on February 8, which marks the first day of the Lunar Calendar and lasts until March 2. This means they celebrate for almost a whole month!

The festivities kick off with the Little Year on February 8. On this day, most activities consist of house cleaning to sweep away bad luck and prayers to the stove god.

On February 16 is the start of the Spring Festival, and there are many celebrations similar to your common New Year’s festivities. The celebration concludes with the Lantern Festival on March 2.

Celebrate Lunar New Year with CXI

Stop by one of our participating CXI locations (listed below) to pick up a red envelope with a coupon to redeem your 80 Chinese yuan.

In Chinese and other Asian societies, a red envelope is a monetary gift which is given during holidays or special occasions. So, make sure to partake in this ancient tradition with us.

You won’t want to miss this event. We wish you good luck and hope to see you stop by. Below is a full list of where and when our CXI locations are distributing envelopes, while supplies last:

1. CXI Citadel Outlets in Los Angeles, California: February 2 - 28

2. CXI The Shops at North Bridge in Chicago, Illinois: February 17

3. CXI Santa Monica Place in Santa Monica, California: February 16 - 19
