This year, Feb. 1 marks the start of a New Year for many communities in Asia and the Asian diaspora. With a date determined by the lunisolar calendar, Lunar New Year falls on a different day in January or February every year, observing the cycles of the moon. Based on the Chinese zodiac, which has each year represented by one of twelve different animals, we're bidding farewell to the Year of the Ox to welcome the Year of the Tiger.
Celebrated by over 1.5 billion people worldwide, it's important to note that festivities and symbolic rituals vary from culture to culture, but one big common thread between them all is the emphasis on togetherness, reuniting with family and loved ones, often over big feasts.
With provincial restrictions loosening, coincidentally beginning on the eve of the new year on Jan. 31, many restaurants are set to open back up for indoor dining, but are also still offering takeout.
Here's your comprehensive guide to all the different feasts and treats being offered at restaurants, bakeries and more in the GTA, who are ready to ring in the Year of the Tiger.
