Happy New Year of the Dragon!

新年快乐

chúc mừng năm mới

새해 복 많이 받으세요

MSA celebrated the 15 days of the Lunar New Year, or Asian Spring Festival beginning on January 23rd. It is traditional that on New Year ’s Eve a large feast is eaten, and so a group of students had a lovely (and yes large) meal at a local Chinese restaurant on Sunday the 22nd.

The next day presentations were made by both Chinese and Korean students and everyone figured out their Chinese zodiac signs and their many wonderful traits.  The highlight of the presentation, however, was the singing of a traditional holiday song by a group of our international students about the love of family and good times.

A fantastic lunch was served the first day of the New Year that featured both Chinese and Korean dishes, all incredibly delicious, and which was thoroughly enjoyed. Couplets – traditional posters placed around doors with auspicious wishes for the new year – went up on several doors to celebrate and bring good luck.

Please view the photos that were taken and the video made of the event on our website. (video) (photos)
