The Chinese New Year, 2018 — “The Year Of The Dog” — is here, as of Friday, February 16, 2016.

It continues for at least 2-weeks.

The festivities in Chinatown, Boston — i.e., the Dragon Parades etc. — per my recockning will be on Sunday, February 25, 2018. 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. Pet a dog.

All the images used in the above collage were from pictures I took at the UNH (Durham, NH), ‘Confucius Institute’, Woodblock Exhibition, for the New Year, on Tuesday.

Happy New Year.

For the last few years (to my knowledge), the ‘University of New Hampshire‘ (at Durham), under the able patronage of their ‘Confucius Institute‘ (led by the v. charismatic and capable Dr. Yige Wang), always does something special to mark the Chinese New Year.

In 2016 & 2014 it was a Miaohui (Temple Fair), with Dragon Dancing etc. They were a LOT of fun. See this post … and this.

This year, for a change, it is this Woodblock Exhibition & Workshop — with a live Jazz band from the local Oyster River Middle School.

It should be good. UNH/Confucius Institute have a very good track record.

Happy Chinese New Year. Year of the Rooster.
