This was at the ‘Traditional Tung Oil Paper Umbrella’ event I wrote about yesterday.

It was at the University of New Hampshire, ‘Confucius Institute’ today and they are doing it again tomorrow, January 30, 2019. If you are around please try to attend. It is free.

She and 69 of her classmates are going to China (with National Geographic) this April. She was amazing. Had close 70 folks, having lunch, totally transfixed. The Oyster River Chorus and Band will perform this and other songs in China.

2019 Chinese New Year – ‘Year Of The Pig’ – February 5th to 15th.

The Chinese New Year, 2019 — ‘The Year Of The Pig‘ — starts next week, on Tuesday, February 5.

The Chinese New Year starts after the 2nd New Moon — following the Winter Solstice. So, its start varies from year-to-year.

It usually continues for at least 2-weeks (in the U.S.).

Last year Chinese New Year started February 16th. So it is pretty early this year.

The festivities in Chinatown, Boston — i.e., the Dragon Parades etc. — per my recockning will be on Sunday, February 27, 2019. It is usually on the 2nd (and last) Sunday of that 2 week period and that is the 25th. I will keep you updated.

In the meantime, have a ball. Snuggle up o a pig.

Happy New Year.
