February 5th marked the start of Lunar New Year celebrations, which will continue through Tuesday, February 19th. 2019 is the Year of the Pig, the twelfth animal of the Chinese Zodiac. ChineseNewYear.net offers some background on the pig’s symbolism and the characteristics of those born in the Year of the Pig.
Our campus is well positioned to take part in celebrations! Boston’s Chinatown hosts the largest parade in New England, which will kick off at 11am on Sunday 2/17 from Phillips Square (the corner of Harrison and Essex) and wend its way through the streets of Chinatown. Boston Discovery Guide gives a good run down of what you’ll expect to see during the parade. After the parade, stick around to explore the Cultural Village which will feature arts, crafts, and cultural demonstrations. The Pao Arts Center is holding a number of workshops on Sunday as well, from dumpling-making and tea-tasting, to Lion Dance workshops for kids.
If you are celebrating Lunar New Year, we wish safe travels and much joy and prosperity this year! 恭贺新禧 Happy New Year!
