Chinese New Year is coming February 16th 2018

and will be celebrated at the school Saturday, February 17th - watch for more posts to keep you updated on this very important yearly event!

Every year the date changes because it follows the Lunar Calendar. It is also called Spring Festival.

Chinese New Year starts a new animal zodiac year. In China, each Lunar cycle has 60 years and 12 years is regarded as a small cycle. Each of the 12 years is defined as an animal sign. 

2018 is year of the Earth Dog. It is believed that the year represented by the animals affect the characters of people in the same way like the Western astrology signs.

People, (like Sifu Sara!), born in the Year of the Dog present with strengths such as:

Sincere, Loyal, Decisive, Responsible, Clever, Courageous, and are not afraid of difficulties in daily life.

According to Chinese zodiac analysis, this makes them have harmonious relationships with people.

Are you born Year of the Dog like Sifu Sara?

Chinese Lions

September 14, 2017

According to traditional Chinese belief, the lion signifies courage, stability and superiority.

Clashing cymbals, gongs and drums excite the moves of the lion. Throughout the performance, the lion will mimic various moods and demonstrate similar physical gestures combining art, history, and kung fu.

The lion dance was thought to bring good luck and prosperity in the year to come. Customary gifts like oranges symbolizing wealth and red envelopes containing lucky money are often seen at Chinese New Year accompanying a lion dance performance.

The northern lion dance was used to entertain the imperial court and the appearance is similar to a Pekinese dog.

The southern dance is more symbolic for Chinese New Year celebrations as mentioned above and have more cat like resemblances.
