Chinese New Year Hits Home
The Chinese New Year began over 3,500 years ago when the mythical beast called the “Year” or “Nian” would terrorize the people, animals, and properties on the eve of the New Year. The beast was said to resemble an Ox, but have the head of a lion, and would live in the sea. People were terrified of this beast until a wise old man learned that the “Year” feared the color red, fire, and loud noises which lead to people hanging red Duilians and lanterns around their houses and businesses as well as using firecrackers. The origin of the Chinese New Year can be dated all the way back to the Shang Dynasty (roughly 1600-1046BC) and those early celebrations began as a sacrificial/religious experience but over the centuries it has evolved into what it is nowadays where people travel to see their family and enjoy decorating with bright red colors, setting off fireworks, sending and receiving red envelopes with small gifts (check out our social media for more special info), and eating good food.
As many of you know the Chinese New Year starts on different days every year, this is because unlike most traditions, they do not use a set calendar. The Chinese Lunar calendar is what determines when the New Year begins, the New Year begins on the first new moon of the lunar calendar and people will celebrate from then until the first full moon of the lunar calendar. The Chinese New Year started out relatively small but it is now one of the biggest holiday celebrations in the entire world.

Son to Chinese immigrant parents, Quay Vuong learned early on the value of hard work. His mother was an owner of a textile factory, and his father was an executive head chef in the restaurant industry. Quay started working with his father when he was 11, and worked at the restaurant until he graduated college with a dual bachelor’s degree in finance and real estate.
During his time as the general manager at the restaurant, Quay had many reasons to visit a dry cleaner to look the part of the position. After a bad experience left his best shirt ruined with a permanent marker, indicating his name on the label, he saw what was wrong with the dry cleaning business, and he decided to make his foray into the industry.
There had to be a better way.
Quay opened Quality Cleaners in Millis to help his customers avoid what happened to him, by providing people the best service experience a dry cleaner can offer. Quay has the experience and “can-do” attitude that make Quality Cleaners Millis, the dry cleaner you choose to do business with.
