Chinese New Year春节: the pig豬

Its the Year of the pig!

The 2019 Chinese New Year will begin today February 4th at 17.00 . The celebrations will last for over two weeks. Chinese New Year takes place on a different date each year because it is based on the lunar calendar,  normally falling between January 21st and February 20th.

The global celebrations are an explosion of light and sound, involving bell ringing, lighting firecrackers and watching traditional lion dances. Chinese families gather together for a reunion dinner on New Year’s Eve, and clean their houses to sweep away bad fortune on New Year’s Day. Traditionally, kids would be given red envelopes stuffed with ‘lucky money’ and positive wishes on New Year’s Day.

In our Facebook page you can see the live videos we will broadcast during the celebrations.

Happy new year !! 新年快乐
