Lunar New Year Quiz
With 2017 in full swing, it’s time to start preparations for the Lunar New Year. As you may know, this New Year celebrated by most of East Asia and many communities around the world is a whole other affair. To start, it’s not even set on the Gregorian January 1!
Traditional Chinese follow the lunar calendar, and New Year preparations and festivities can last a full month. In the old days, families prepared a huge spread of food and offerings for ancestors and deities, like the ‘Kitchen God’. Everyone took part in various religious rituals to honor the heavens. In China today, the New Year is the time for extended families, migrant workers, and anyone away from home to make a long-anticipated trip to unite with their relatives. For Chinese communities worldwide, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
