In our Mandarin lesson this week we learnt about Chinese New Year. Our teacher Charlotte wore a beautiful tradditional Chinese dress. She told us the story of the great race and the lunar year. We looked at cards, lucky money envelopes and lanteerns.
Chinese New Year lasts for 15 days and ends with a lantern festive. Families clean the house before the festival getting rid of the old and welcoming in the new. We learnt that red is a liucky colour, we made lucky money envelopes. This year is year of the rabbit.
