  WHEREAS,  It  is  the custom of this Legislative Body to honor, with
pleasure and great pride, the Asian American community of the  State  of

  WHEREAS,  The  Lunar  New  Year is a festival of great importance in
Asian American communities; the celebration of the  Lunar  New  Year  is
fundamental  to  Asian  American cultures and promotes both goodwill and

distinctive  festivities  and  much  preparation; the celebration of the
Lunar New Year is a tradition by  which  Asian  Americans  proclaim  the
arrival of a new year and look forward to what it will bring; and
  WHEREAS,  According  to  legend,  Buddha  invited the animals of the
world to visit him, rewarding those who came by naming a year  in  their
honor;  each  animal,  in  turn,  gave its characteristics to those born
during its year; and
  WHEREAS, On February 12, 2021, in accordance with their calendar and
beliefs, Asian Americans will joyously usher in  the  Year  of  the  Ox,
4719; and
  WHEREAS, People born in the Year of the Ox are known to be diligent,
dependable, strong, and determined; and
  WHEREAS,   Those  born  under  the  sign  of  the  Ox  are  patient,
persistent, and detail oriented; and
  WHEREAS, When working, those born under the sign of the Ox are  able
to achieve their goals through their unmatched effort and determination;
  WHEREAS,  The  distinguished  beauty  of  the  Asian culture and the
contribution of its people in business and the economy as well as in the
arts and sciences has left substantial impacts on our global  community;
the  contributions  of  Asian Americans are particularly esteemed within
this great Empire State and are acknowledged for their outstanding merit
and value; and
  WHEREAS, Recognizing the significance of their contributions to  the
City  and the State of New York, this Legislative Body is proud to honor
all New Yorkers of Asian ancestry, joining with them  in  welcoming  the
Year of the Ox, 4719, on February 12, 2021; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the Asian American community's celebration of the Lunar  New
Year, the Year of the Ox, on February 12, 2021; and be it further
