Celebrating Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, also called Lunar New Year, emphasises family togetherness as well as good luck and prosperity for the coming year. It is on Sunday 22 January this year. The Chinese zodiac, or shengxiao, is represented by 12 zodiac animals. In order, they are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

2023 is known to be the year of the rabbit, which symbolises mercy, elegance, and beauty. People who are born in the year of the rabbit are predicted to be calm and peaceful. Last week members of the Mandarin Club took part in some Chinese New Year activities such as writing the Chinese blessing word of fortune (Fu) in calligraphy and paper cutting. In the boarding houses weekend activities include dumpling making and a hot pot night, while this Friday in school we will have Chinese food and music in the Dining Hall and Donachers to celebrate Chinese culture.

If you would like to attend a community event, on Saturday 18 February there is a Chinese celebration of dance, music and professional acts at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich.
