Happy Chinese New Year

The Year of the Rooster

Chinese New Year Celebrations

imgres-1Saturday, January 28th, marks the beginning of the Chinese Lunar New Year, China’s biggest holiday, which is celebrated throughout the world. Chinese people ring in the new year when the new moon is closest to the beginning of spring, usually sometime between mid-January and late-February.
2017 is a Fire Rooster Year. According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with one of five elements as well as an animal, 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 their own experiences, traditions and ways of celebrating the New Year, and cooked traditional Chinese dumplings with the children. Many of the children were beautifully dressed for the holiday.
