THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
LUNAR NEW YEAR, 1998
Warm greetings to all those celebrating the Lunar New Year.
This joyous occasion celebrates the blessings of family, community, and a rich and ancient heri-tage. It is a special time to reflect on the events of the previous year and to embrace the challenges of the year ahead. Vibrant with color, lights, dancing, parades, folk music, and delicious food, the Lunar New Year reminds all of us of the beauty and variety of Asian culture and of the strength, character, and achievement that Asian Americans bring to our national life.
As we join you in welcoming the Year of the Tiger, Hillary and I extend best wishes to all for a new year full of health, happiness, prosperity, and peace.
WILLIAM J. CLINTON
