Lunar New Year is a time to celebrate and spend time with family and friends. Lunar New Year is a holiday based on the lunar calendar, and is celebrated by most Asian countries. It is year of the rabbit. Lunar New Year is a time of festivity with celebrations that includes exchanging gifts. Usually red envelopes that contain money.

The most popular celebration is the lion dance. It usually has 2 people. One person is the body and one is the head. Colonial was lucky enough to have a lion dance celebration come to our school. Penelope Garvett said “It was really cool to know that our school includes everyone.” The entire school danced and celebrated the Lunar New Year together.
