Lunar New Year

Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year Festival, has more than 4,000 years of history. It is on the first day of the first lunar month and is the most important and ceremonious traditional festival in China, just as Christmas Day is to the westerners. The Chinese Language and Culture Club organizes and celebrates the Lunar New Year Celebration annually.

Every year in January/February, the Chinese Language and Culture Club, Wheaton students, faculty and community members celebrate the Lunar New Year together. Students showcase their varied talents with worship songs, music, dance, poetry reading, Taekwondo demonstration, food, games, and cultural booths.
