Chinese New Year

We celebrated Chinese New Year at school this week - parents brought lots of delicious food and explained some of the traditions.

Tangerines symbolize luck; oranges wealth - go here to read more about what foods symbolize

Red envelopes traditionally filled with money, these had chocolate coins

We learned some calligraphy

And now we're on vacation for a little over a week to celebrate New Years.  Xīn nián kuài lè!


  1. OMG I love those bell-shaped red fruits! I forget what they are called, but as far as I know, nowhere in U.S. has them ]:


  2. I love bell fruit too! Too bad you can't find them where you are!
