Chinese New Year: The Year of The Dragon

From 23rd January, Education Group is celebrating The Year of the Dragon with many schools across the UK. Workshop highlights include our famous ‘Dragon Dance’ and Chinese storytelling.

Chinese New Year celebrations begin on the 23rd January 2012 and last for 15 days. Traditionally, it was a time for the Chinese to pray to their ancestors as well as to all the gods.

Highlights include the Lantern Festival on the 15th night, spending time with family, eating lots of food and being extra kind to dogs (the second day is believed to be the birthday of all dogs). 

But remember, it is important to wear red throughout the Chinese New Year celebrations to ward off evil spirits.
