Happy Chinese New Year 2018

The Year of the Dog

Chinese New Year Celebrations

Friday, February 16th, marked the beginning of the Chinese Lunar New Year, China’s biggest holiday, which is celebrated throughout the world. 

2018 is the year of the DOG

According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with an animal as well as one of five elements, including gold (metal), wood, water, fire or Earth. The element, combined with the zodiac animal, sets the astrology for the year.

Many of the classrooms hosted parent visitors who gave wonderful presentations on Chinese New Year. They read stories, talked about Chinese customs and ways of celebrating the New Year, and the importance of the color red. They made crafts, and cooked Chinese dumplings with the children and offered other holiday foods. Many of the children dressed in traditional clothing.  It was a wonderful way to experience this holiday and culture.
