CHINESE NEW YEAR

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 新年快樂

The Chinese New Year festival celebrates the beginning of the new year in the traditional Chinese (or lunisolar) calendar. It is celebrated at the time of the new moon between 21 January and 20 February. This year it is on Friday February 12th.

 

In Chinese, it is known as the Spring Festival, 春節, as it occurs at the start of the Spring season in the traditional Chinese calendar. It is a time of family reunion and feasting, ancestor worship, celebration and traditional customs. Do you celebrate it with your family?

 

In honour of this fun and exciting time of year, we have put together a series of learning tools and activities to bring the festivities into your home!
