Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year, is the most important celebration observed in China, with cultural and historic significance. This year the celebration began on February 1st! The festival signals the beginning of spring, and the start of a new year according to the Chinese lunar calendar. The New Year celebration is centered around removing the bad and the old and welcoming the new and the good! Each Lunar year is represented by a cycle of 12 zodiac animals - this year is the Year of the Tiger🐅, the first since 2010. People visit friends and family they give each other oranges for good luck. There are lots of red decorations for lunar new year because in China red is the color of happiness. Our learners learned about the Legend of Nian, decorations, the Lantern Festival, the Dragon & Lion Dance, the meaning of the color red, and all about traditional foods!
