For the Perfect Lunar New Year
ENJOY THE CHINESE NEW YEAR WITH YOUR FAMILY, AND GATHER AROUND FOR THE INDISPENSABLE DUMPLING FEAST.
The Chinese New Year is one of the three most important holidays for the Chinese for reuniting with family. Celebration customs vary across the international community, but in northern China where fending off the brutal cold has been a priority since the beginning of time, people's loyalty to gathering around a table of steaming dumplings with their loved ones is deep-rooted and well-grounded. The origin of this tradition is a heartwarming story itself.
After millennia, dumpling-wrapping parties and the dumpling feast itself are still symbols of the New Year, and have become something of anticipation and nostalgia for Chinese around the world. Though nowadays dumplings of assorted fillings can be found on menus in almost every corner of the globe and at anytime, sitting down to a tableful with your friends and family at New Year's holds a whole other significance. And it all began with kindness.
This February 16, Shen Yun’s five companies will be celebrating with performances across North America, Europe, and Oceania. From the Shen Yun family to yours, we wish you a Happy Chinese New Year, and hope to make your holiday celebrations all the more meaningful. As for the recommended evening meal of the day—you've guessed it!
On Feb 16, Shen Yun will be in Detroit; St. Paul; Mesa, AZ; London, United Kingdom; and Auckland, New Zealand. For information and other cities, please visit www.shenyun.com/tickets.
