We may have just finished welcoming the new year into our classroom, but that’s not the end of the new year celebrations for other parts of the world!

In China, the new year festivities are dictated by the lunar calendar, which is why the date is different every year. In 2020 Chinese New Year begins on January 25th and lasts for 11 days, followed by a lantern festival on February 8.

The sights and sounds of Chinese New Year make it an exciting celebration for youngsters to learn about in your Holidays Around the World Unit. Make red pockets and fill them with chocolate coins, try dumplings and make lanterns and dragons to decorate the room!
