Chinese New Year 2023 - Limited Edition Fruit Tray

The holiday celebrated by billions of people around the world, especially countries in the east Asia, is upon us. The Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year, falls on different date each year, depending on the cycles of the moon. This year celebration falls on Sunday, January 22 and is slated to be the year of the rabbit. 

History of Chinese New Year: A Brief Timeline

The calendar's existence dates back to the Shang Dynasty in the 14th century B.C. As explained by Yong Chen, a scholar in Asian American Studies, "The holiday has ancient roots in China as an agricultural society. It was the occasion to celebrate the harvest and worship the gods and ask for good harvests in times to come".

In modern days, the culture and tradition of the holiday is centered around the hope for good fortune and prosperity. More specifically, it is also considered as the time for family reunion and to honor household and heavenly deities, as well as ancestors. 

Mandarin oranges, red apples, red grapes, tangerine, peaches, dragon fruits, and pears are among the staple fruits associated with the Chinese New Year celebration. These fruits are displayed and used in prayer offerings to represent and honor the idea of wholeness, completeness, and unity.

Carton Connection Signature Fruit Tray

Here at Carton Connection, we always focus on functions and sustainability. Traditional fruit baskets are perfect as a gift during the Chinese New Year. They are elegant, easy to carry, and there are so many creative ways to reuse them. However, they aren't the most efficient when it comes to storage and transportation due to their inability to stack. If you live in an extended family household like we do, you'll need packing solutions that are robust, practical, and space-conscious.

Our heavy-duty stackable fruit tray is specifically designed to accommodate a wide variety of fruits, food, and gifts associated with the celebration. The tray comes with a lid attached with a transparent window. The design of the vent-holes ensure proper airflow. The sides contain handles to allow for easy carrying even when stacked in multiple layers. Our fruit tray will be available for purchase throughout January to February 2023. 

Dimension: 32.00 x 42.50 x 21.00 cm.

Capacity: Up to 20 kg.
