Celebrate Chinese New Year!
Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival, will fall on February 8th this year, and will celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Monkey! The Spring Festival is a huge celebration in China; most businesses will be closed for two weeks as families travel back to their home towns to spend time with loved ones. One tradition of Chinese new year is giving red envelopes. These envelopes typically contain an even amount of cash, for good luck.
Want to celebrate Chinese New Year?
This Sunday, February 7 at 6:00 in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union, the Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) will host the Chinese Spring Festival Gala. This event is a great opportunity to experience Chinese culture, as students perform singing, dancing, comedy, and more! Admission is FREE and there will also be a chance to win the Lucky Draw!
Only a limited number of tickets will be available at the door. To pick up tickets beforehand, go to the CSSA office at C4 East Student Office Space in the Memorial Union this Wednesday through Friday between 11AM-2PM.
See you there!
