CELEBRATION OF CHINESE NEW YEAR
On February 13th, together with Confucius class students of the VGTU Engineering Lyceum, we celebrated Chinese New Year of the Yellow Dog. An event was opened by a concert, students performed popular Chinese songs, played traditional Chinese instruments. After the concert, we all together participated at the calligraphy workshops, took part in the lesson of Martial Arts (Wushu) and attended traditional tea ceremony. In fact, we did not forget the Shrovetide celebration known as the Pancake day, therefore not only did we make pancakes, but also cooked traditional Chinese dumplings (Jiaozi), which is an important element of the Spring festivil in China.
This event even got some attention from Chinese News website Xinhua. You can find an articale written in Chinese here: http://xinhuanet.com/2018-02/18/c_1122427100.htm
