Lunar New Year
January 22, 2012Posted by on
We wish all staff, students and community celebrating Lunar New Year a happy and joyful celebration in the company of family and friends.
Lunar New Year is a cultural and religious celebration for many Chinese, Koreans and Vietnamese. This is the year of the Dragon. People born in 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988 and 2000 were also born in the year of the “Dragon”.
Many rituals are associated with this festive occasion. They include cleaning house, paying off debts, settling old arguments, and other means of making a “fresh start.” To celebrate, people may light firecrackers, hang poetry, enjoy a family feast (oranges and apples are considered lucky fruits), exchange gifts (adults may give children laisee, red envelopes filled with money), and buy new clothes or new shoes.
As a school, we will aim to highlight Significant Faith Days recognized by our board throughout the year.
