Information on poster:
Chinese New Year is the most important holiday for Chinese people. The Chinese calendar is based around changes of the moon, unlike western calendars, which are based on the sun. Chinese New Year falls in January or February each year.
Chinese New Year is celebrated for fifteen days. On the holiday’s eve, families come together to eat a meal called the reunion dinner. It is common to give children small red bags containing money. The red symbolises good luck.
On the last day of Chinese New Year, people celebrate with a lantern festival. Many people decorate their streets with beautiful lanterns and participate in parades. On this day,
families cook dumplings made of sticky rice and eat them in a sweet soup.
