The 19th of February is Lantern Day in the Chinese New Year Celebrations and that marks the end of the Chinese New Year
There are many different ways of celebrating the Lantern Festival. Houses are decorated with colourful lanterns, often with riddles written on them. The solver earns a small gift if the riddle is answered correctly. There are lion and dragon dances, fireworks and parades. Yuanxiao or tangyuan, small glutinous rice balls filled with fruits and nuts, are eaten during the festival. The festival symbolises wholeness and unity within the family.
The Mongolian New Year (Tsagaan Sar) and the Chinese New Year celebrations remind us that the coldest days of winter should be over and that here in the Northern Hemisphere the days are gradually getting longer – sorry Southern. It’s now just two weeks until the start of Meteorological Spring on 1st March.
