Lunar New Year 2023 - "The Lantern Festival"

The fifteenth day of the New Year is the Lantern Festival (元宵节 Yuánxiāo Jié /ywen-sshyaou jyeah/). It is the traditional end of Spring Festival celebrations. Some people send glowing lanterns into the sky, while others release floating lanterns onto the sea, onto rivers, or adrift in lakes.

Come join the Center for Global Engagement to enjoy some lantern festival activities such as calligraphy, release of wishes, lantern building, food, games and more!
