15th New Year Chinese New Year
Firecracker Ceremony & Cultural Festival in Chinatown, NYC
It is tradition to begin the Lunar New Year by setting off
firecrackers at midnight. And, since Chinatown in NYC inhabits approximately
100,000 people and is one of the largest enclaves outside of Asia, you know they
are pretty serious about traditions! However, it is illegal to light
firecrackers in NYC! So, there is a formal ceremony that is approved for the setting
off of rockets and firecrackers along with lion dances, drumming, dancing and a
parade through the streets. *FREE*

coming year once and for all. Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year, is a
centuries old, important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated all around
the world. Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the
celebration of the Chinese New Year vary widely. Often, the evening
preceding New Year’s Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather
together to their annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every
family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any
ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will
be decorated with red paper cut-outs with popular themes of good-fortune or
happiness, wealth, and longevity. Other activities include lighting
firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes. Chinese tradition
states that the Year of the Horse is optimistic, with a belief that good
fortune will soon be on the way with plenty of supportive friends, so please
join together and celebrate with your friends at International House!
