Lunar New Year 2016

Postby deja vu on Sat Feb 06, 2016 3:22 pm

Lots of festivals and parties going on around the world in celebration, here is a sample of a couple of them.


Gong xi fa cai! (Or Kung hei fat choy! if you're speaking Cantonese). Welcome, year of the fire monkey.

Like Korean Seollal​, Vietnamese Tet, Mongolian Tsagaan Sarand Tibetan Losar​, Chinese New Year farewells winter and the year gone by and rings in spring and the fresh year with family and friends. Making wishes for luck, prosperity and good fortune and warding off evil spirits are central to many celebrations, which vary across China and Lunar New Year cultures.

We can view 28 photographs on the "abc NEWS" site that shows what sorts of things people were doing to celebrate the Lunar New Year in 2016.

You might need to let your browser take a few minutes for that page to load. Be patient, if it doesn't load right away.
