Chinese New Year
To celebrate Chinese New Year, Mr Phillips held a special assembly and explained why and where it is celebrated:
It is a traditional holiday that is very important in China, it is also known as the Spring Festival, which is the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Traditionally, Chinese New Year would begin on the last day of the month in the Chinese calendar, Chinese New Year’s Eve, and would end on the fifteenth day of the first month – the Lantern Festival. This makes it the longest festival in the Chinese calendar. It is celebrated all around the world.
