For Asians all over the world, the Lunar New Year is an event that celebrates the beginning of the new year, the end of winter, and the anticipation of spring. It begins with the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar which is the Chinese New Year’s Even and runs until the 15th day of the first month when they have the Lantern Festival. This upcoming year, Lunar New Year, which is based on the phases of the moon, falls on February 19th, 2015 of our Gregorian calendar.
Over the years I’ve had the chance to attend some of the Chinese New Year festivals and I’m always amazed at the rich colors, vibrant dress, and wonderful music. I think my favorite may be the Lantern Festival when here in Seattle lanterns are floated on to Green Lake as a symbol of people letting go of their past selves and accepting new ones (though sending them skyward with the help of a lighted candle is more traditional). The event it attended by thousands of people and the lights on the lake are stunning and a great reminder that new beginnings are always possible.
