The year of the Rooster
Jan. 24, 2017 | This coming Saturday marks the start of the Chinese New Year, which will be the Year of the Rooster.
In anticipation of this upcoming celebration, Corey L., Bobby D., Elaine L., and David Y. put together a 'special news report' this morning. Also known as Spring Festival in China, this new year celebration is the country's most important and traditional festival. After her fellow news anchors explained the histroy of some of the various customs of the Chinese New Year, Elaine played a time-honoured melody and concluded with some 'fun facts' about the special holiday. The group has also decorated the Chapel and will be hosting a Chinese-themed lunch tomorrow in Dining Hall. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis will be hosting a student-cooked feast this weekend to celebrate, which is sure to be a treat given that a special trip to Montreal's Chinatown to pick up supplies took place last week!
