Crystal Kung Minkoff is taking a joyful walk down memory lane as she celebrates Lunar New Year. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member recently looked back on her dazzling celebration that she hosted in the RHOBH Season 11 finale and reflected on the meaningful experience of sharing her culture and traditions.
"I can’t believe it’s been a year since my family and I hosted this Lunar New Year celebration," Crystal wrote in the caption of her February 1 Instagram post, which featured a series of stunning captures from her past Lunar New Year event held at Shan Social House with her fellow RHOBH cast members in attendance.
She went on to add, "Sharing my culture, family, and traditions with new friends (none of which have never celebrated [Chinese New Year] before) was beyond special. As we transition into the Year of the Tiger, remember that it is more than just the beginning of a new calendar year; the Lunar New Year is seen as a time of reunion and rebirth. In Chinese culture, the tiger is the symbol of bravery, wisdom and strength. I wish you all good luck, fortune, and abundance in all directions."
In addition to sharing an Instagram video with her Lunar New Year event highlights from the RHOBH Season 11 finale, Crystal reflected more about last year's spectacular Chinese New Year celebration in an interview with Women's Health. "It's gonna be hard to top last year," she said, adding, "I feel like I gave the girls sort of the spectacular version of [Chinese New Year], and I certainly can do it every single year. With COVID, though, I don't know if I can have so many people [together] right now."
Recently, Crystal offered a glimpse at her family's Lunar New Year celebration with a sweet throwback post of her two children. "An oldie but a goodie!!" she wrote in the caption of her adorable February 2 post, adding the hashtag, "Day 2 of [Lunar New Year] Celebrations" in the caption.
Crystal also previously opened up during an exclusive interview with The Daily Dish at the beginning of her rookie season of RHOBH about how important it was for her to share her culture with viewers.
"I think I’m probably most excited to share my Chinese culture and background and traditions," she said at the time. "And, my husband’s Jewish, and so our kids are [Chinese and Jewish], and that’s equally important. They have such a beautiful culture that should also be shared in a bigger way. So, I’m excited for people to see what kind of a mixed family looks like. I’m excited for that."
