Ringing in the Chinese New Year

By  | 

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) It may be February but it's time to ring in the New Year. In the Chinese tradition, Feb. 16 marks the Year of the Dog. And one-fifth of the world's population will celebrate the Chinese New Year.

And if you'd like to celebrate, the Vermont Chinese School will have its Chinese New Year Celebration Party this Sunday, February 18th at 12:00 pm at Tuttle Middle School on 500 Dorset Street in South Burlington.

And on Saturday in Shelburne at the Lake Champlain Waldorf School on
359 Turtle Lane, a celebration will take place from 10:00 am to noon.

Vermont Chinese School Director George Tang joined us to tell us more about the cultural and historical significance of the holiday. Watch the video for the full interview.
