Disclosure: I received a calendar to assess. All opinions are my own.
McDonalds New York Tri-State is helping to honor and celebrate the holiday by producing limited edition Chinese New Year calendars. Not available in stores or restaurants, McDonalds will be distributing calendars at various Lunar New Year (a.k.a. Chinese New Year) events. In addition, Bicultural Mama will be awarding 10 readers their very own copy.
Calendars features stunning colorful artwork by Asian American artist Jennifer Maravillas. She states in the calendar, “The process of researching and drawing began with geography and major cities. Next I represented the cultures through the many festivals that takeplace in each country. Finally, I drew the indigenous or important flora and fauna.”
Calendars include illustrations of China, Vietnam, Japan, South Korea, India, and Philippines. Each page lists tidbits about Chinese New Year traditions, the symbolism of items represented in the artwork, or interesting cultural facts. The calendar is truly a work of art.
