I don’t usually do anything special for Chinese New Year – except on the odd occassion where I’ve eaten Chinese take-away – but I would’nt class that as celebrating. This year, for the first time, I went to see the Chinese New Year festival in Chatham Highstreet.
I’m not sure what I was expecting to see, and there were at times things/people taking part that I was a little confused about, but overall it was quite a fun and exciting experience. I will add that this experience would have definaltly been hightened if I had some chow mein!
Though this was only a reletivly small festival, compared to China Town or China, it gave a small insight into their culture, beliefs and fashion. Does anyone do anything special for Chinese New Year? I think I’ll have to add Chinese New Year in China onto the bucket list now.
