Happy Belated Chinese New Year!

Posted almost 3 years ago by Dr. Karla Smith-Lucas

NTNP wishes you all a happy belated Chinese New Year!

This traditional fest has been celebrated for more than four thousand years.

It came about from  ancient celebrations to  mark the end of the long winter season and the beginning of  spring.

It celebrates the earth coming back to life and the beginning of the growing cycle.

This is why it is also called the Spring Festival.

For Chinese people all over, the Lunar New Year is the celebration of the year, a time for happy reunions, family and friends,  rich in colorful traditions and  customs.
