Chinese New Year

This week marked the start of the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese lunar calendar. The dragon is a symbol of strength, good luck, and the supernatural.

The Chinese New Year is also called the Spring Festival. And it's considered the most important traditional Chinese holiday. Families clean their houses to symbolically sweep away ill fortune and make way for good luck. Windows and doors are decorated with red to celebrate the themes of happiness, wealth and longevity.
