Chinese New Year 2016

Posted by on Mar 28, 2016 in Announcements, Grade School, High School, News and Events | 0 comments

The Chinese New Year (or Spring Festival) is the most important festival for Chinese people, and this is when all family members get together, just like Christmas in the West. Chinese New Year’s Day is the first day of the Chinese lunar calendar. 2016 is the Red Fire Monkey year, which was celebrated last February 8. Chinese people greet one another with “Gung hey fat choi” (Cantonese) or “Gong xi facai” (Mandarin),” which literally means, “Wishing you a financially prosperous year.” Before the New Year comes, people completely clean the indoors and outdoors of their homes as well as their clothes and all their utensils. They’d put up Chinese decorations, make handicrafts, eat jiaozi (dumplings) and niangao (New Year cake made of glutinous rice flour), and many more.
Kong Hua School students performed for the “KHS Chinese New Year Show” in many places in the city. The dragon and lion dances, traditional Chinese dances, and Chinese songs were performed in the following places:
• February 4, 2016 KHS Auditorium
• February 5, 2016 PamahawEspesyal
• February 6, 2016 SM
• February 7, 2016 Centrio Mall and San Lorenzo Ruiz Church
• February 8, 2016 Limketkai Mall and Oro Rama
The show was successful. Many people complimented the show. Once again, Kong Hua School enriched the Chinese culture. May this year be prosperous! 新年快乐,万事如意!
