Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! Welcome to the Year of the Dog! Yesterday, the Land of Dreams had a special visit from Veronica. She told us the story of Nian and spoke about how her family celebrate the holiday. Veronica told us that to celebrate Chinese New Year she has a meal with her family and wears red.
Asha asked the question: Why are there dragon puppets at Chinese New Year celebrations? Veronica told us that they represent the Emperor and the Royal family. The dragon is a very important symbol during the celebrations.
Thank you Veronica for talking to us about this special day!
