Lunar New Year is just around the corner on February 10 so it’s prep time if you celebrate. This year, we are ushering the Year of the Dragon. According to the South China Morning Post, the Dragon “symbolizes power, nobleness, honor, luck, and success in traditional Chinese culture. The Dragon is a supernatural being with o parallel for talent and excellence.” Additionally, the timing coincides with the start of a new 20-year feng shui cycle that is dominated by the element of fire and the number nine.
And every year there’s an element associated with the zodiac sign—this year is wood, so it’s the year of the Wood Dragon. What does that mean exactly? The South China Morning Post says, “wood fuels the element of fire, and thus the quality of the dragon is enhanced. Be prepared for an unpredictable and volatile year ahead. ‘Never a dull moment’ is the phrase for 2024!” That energy can also help you propel you to make decisions or changes that you’ve been stalling on.
There are so many different traditions to celebrate the Lunar New Year, like gathering with family and friends for a meal (with longevity noodles, steamed fish, dumplings, and more); handing out red envelopes filled with money; or heading to a festival or parade.
If you want to bring the celebrations home, many brands are featuring limited-edition products and collaborations to mark the occasion. Take a look at some noteworthy options below and get ready to welcome the Year of the Wood Dragon!

Sunset staffers love MìLà’s (formerly XCJ) soup dumplings and sauces—they’re easy to prepare and are totally authentic (like they were homemade!). Just in time for Lunar New Year, the brand has teamed up with Seattle’s oldest pho shop, Phở Bắc, on a limited edition dumpling flavor. They feature a savory beef filling and a comforting, rich broth, and it’s essentially pho in dumpling form (minus the rice noodles). The MìLà team recommends pairing the dumpling with their special dumpling sauce, sriracha, jalapeños, and basil.
