Lunar New Year at Panda Express!

Celebrate Lunar New Year and the Year of the Rat at Panda Express!

Mark your calendars because January 25, 2020 marks the beginning of Lunar New Year and Panda Express is a great place to celebrate! 2020 is the Year of the Rat in the Chinese zodiac and nearly 20% of the world celebrates this annual holiday.

Lunar New Year traditionally includes the coming together of family and friends to feast and welcome the new year. A variety of lucky foods are served and Panda Express locations in southeast Michigan will serve egg rolls which symbolize wealth, long chow mein noodles that symbolize long life and shrimp that symbolizes happiness.

Another Lunar New Year tradition is the exchanging of red envelopes, called hong bao. These monetary gifts are presented at family gatherings and their red color symbolizes good luck and is said to ward off evil spirits.

To bring good fortune to your family this year, enjoy a meal at your nearest Panda Express on January 25 and receive a red envelope with a coupon for your next visit. Make your own red envelope donation at the register to help kids treated at Beaumont Children’s.

In 2019, Panda Express employees and customers donated nearly $200,000 to Beaumont Children’s and helped to fund vital equipment and programs for premature infants through young adults.
