Chinese New Year – Welcome to the year of the horse!

Today sees the start of 15 days of celebration to mark the Chinese New Year. Sometimes called Spring Festival, this is a time for visiting family and friends, special meals, fireworks and giving gifts. We’re not sure the weather at the moment is particularly good for fireworks, but all that sounds very lovely to us!

If you’d like to find out more about China or Chinese New Year, we do of course have lots of books and journals that you might be interested in. You might also like to check out this handy article from The Week, Kung hei fat choy! Saddle up for Chinese New Year. If you’re looking for some local celebrations, why not call in at the National Waterfront Museum on Sunday and see what’s going on?
