In the library February 2013 – Chinese New Year

In the library yesterday afternoon I told The Great Race; The Story of the Chinese Zodiac.


We also talked about Chinese New Year and sung Gung Hay Fat Choy

Chinese New Year is the most important of all the traditional Chinese holidays and is celebrated in many countries around the world.

The Chinese New Year festivities in London are the largest outside Asia and include a parade, a lion dance, food and craft stalls, live performances and a fireworks display.


Based on the lunar and solar calendars, the actual date of Chinese New Year varies, but always falls between late January and mid February.

Each year in the Chinese calendar is represented by one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac.

2013 is the year of the snake.
