Juice had always been fascinated with Chinese culture. From the elaborate dragon dances at the Lunar New Year celebrations to the unique cuisine, learning about China's rich history and culture was something Juice always aspired to do.
So when Juice found out that Chinese New Year was just around the corner, he decided to take a trip to China to celebrate it.
He booked his flight, packed his bags and arrived in Beijing just days before the New Year. Once he arrived in China, Juice was in awe of the culture and all the different traditions. Everywhere he went, he saw people celebrating the coming of the Year of the Rabbit and wishing each other luck and prosperity.
The sign of the Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture. 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.
It is January 22nd 2023, and you might be wondering why China celebrate their New Year on another date.
China has a long and proud history of celebrating the New Year. While most other countries like the United States observe the Gregorian calendar, starting a new year on January 1, China follows a different system.
The Chinese New Year, known as the Spring Festival, is celebrated between January 21 and February 20. China celebrates this festival in order to honor their ancestors and to bring in the harvest season.
Everywhere people were exchanging red envelopes, a token of good luck and prosperity for the new year.
The red envelopes were filled with money and given out to family, friends, and neighbors. People were also eating Niángāo, a special type of rice cake. The cake symbolized a higher income or position in life, and everyone was hoping for a prosperous year.
The streets were full of life and excitement. The smell of fresh food filled the air, and the sound of laughter.
Happy New Year!!!
