Chinese New Year with Panda Express

Panda Express, America's favorite Chinese restaurant, is inviting everyone to celebrate Chinese New Year!

Chinese New Year is one of the most celebrated holidays in China and for Chinese Americans it is a time to reunite with those you consider family and participate in traditions that prepare you for happiness and good fortune in the new year.

People from all cultural backgrounds can celebrate and embrace this holiday because it celebrates family and a new beginning.

Food is an important part of the Chinese New Year celebration. Family and friends typically gather for a huge feast to kicks off the holiday. Many of the dishes served during Chinese New Year have symbolic meanings.

Egg rolls or spring rolls are a symbol of wealth, the long uncut noodles in Chow Mein symbolize long life, and mixed vegetables represent family togetherness and symbolizes the harmony in the family.

Panda will be hosting a Celebration Day on February 19th and would like to wish all our guests good fortune for Chinese New Year. Guests can enjoy a free egg roll, which resembles a gold bar and symbolizes wealth and prosperity by downloading a coupon on our web site starting February 12th.
