Celebrating cultures – Happy Chinese New Year 4713
These red lanterns are hung to celebrate the traditional Chinese New Year in Hong Kong. Chinese New Year remains the most important holiday in China. Its celebration begins on the last day of the Chinese calendar and culminates on the 15th day of the new year with a lantern festival, making it the longest festival in the Chinese calendar.
It is celebrated throughout the world, in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations. The largest celebration outside of China is in San Francisco, CA.
THE YEAR OF THE SHEEP
Legend has it that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each one. Those born in sheep years are often artistic, charming, sensitive, and sweet. It is known as the most creative sign in the Chinese zodiac.
Residents are invited to our Chinese New Year Party on Wednesday, February 25 at 7:00 to 8:30 on the Mezzanine. We will enjoy traditional foods, drinks and music to welcome in the Year of the Sheep.
Thanking Asia Nine for what will be a delicious menu.
