Spigot, Inc. not only got the awesome opportunity to attend Affiliate Summit West this past week, BUT we also got to ring in the Chinese New Year! During all of the conferences in Las Vegas this week – the hotels on the strip decked OUT their lobby’s and restaurants with all kinds of Chinese New Year decor and the Cosmopolitan (Where most Spigot, Inc. employees stayed) had a huge celebration in the lobby. The celebration consisted of the famous Chinese “Lion Dance” – which is intended to bring luck and prosperity. Along with the dance; the performers participated in the “plucking of the greens,” where the performers picked up red envelopes of cash attached to green lettuce, and spit out the torn up leaves to signify the distribution of wealth and prosperity. After the Lion Dance – we then got to experience the “Dragon Dance,” which is also meant to bring luck and prosperity during the celebrations. This dance consisted of a large group of people carrying around a giant dragon and doing specific dance moves. It was really exciting for Spigot, Inc. to learn more about the Chinese Culture and Celebrate all the way from the US!
During the conference, a few Spigot, Inc. employees even got to try Dim Sum “Soup dumplings” at the Chinese Restaurant, Lemongrass and see all the decor in the Aria as well. The Aria had “Year of the Rat” decor everywhere. Every Chinese New Year a Zodiac sign is appointed and this year is the “Year of the Rat.” In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children. They are also considered clever, quick thinkers; successful, but content with living a quiet and peaceful life.
Spigot, Inc. really values and appreciates our relationship with our parent company, Genimous Technologies. it was awesome to have the opportunity to celebrate the Chinese New Year in Las Vegas at our conference!
