Chinese New Year

January 20, 2017 - Serving Seniors

This afternoon Serving Seniors hosted a Chinese New Year celebration with more than 40 Asian senior clients performing traditional Chinese acts from Taiji sword to Tajji fan dancing to musical instrument and singing.

Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar. Traditionally, at Chinese New Year celebrations people wear red clothes, and decorate poems on red paper. Red symbolizes fire, which according to legend can drive away bad luck.

Thank you to Maggie Mo, our Mandarin speaking social worker, Mr. Mau who orchestrated the event and to all of the beautiful performers this afternoon. Happy New Year!
