When you sign up for Chinese dating sites, you probably don’t expect to learn anything about the availability of cherries in China. However, this is actually a topic worth exploring.
With the Chinese New Year right around the corner – the big celebration happens this year on February 18th – there was a question as to whether or not the country would have enough cherries for the celebration because it falls later than usual this year.
Thanks to some really great timing for Tasmanian growers, there will be no cherry shortage! In fact, 2015 may very well be the year of the Tasmanian cherry.
In case you didn’t already know, the Chinese New Year is based on the lunar cycle and the dates are shifted every year. Because the dates move around so much, there is no guarantee that a particular year will have a good cherry harvest.
Cherries are a big part of the celebration and are often given as gifts during this time. Most cherries are a deep, rich red – a color that is revered in Chinese culture. The Chinese believe that the color red brings good luck. This is why they give a red envelope that contains money at weddings and other celebrations.
When you’re chatting to any lovely ladies you’ve met on any Chinese dating sites, now you know a little bit about cherries and the Chinese New Year!
