Chinese New Year

Lunar New Year in China Town

Josh Loring

The Chinese New Year, also referred to as the Lunar New Year, is a century old celebration that revolves around the Chinese lunar calendar and typically lasts seven days, kicking off some time in January or February.  For those who celebrate, the occasion is marked by several customs and traditions, a pillar of which is honoring ones ancestors.  Each New Year is represented by one of twelve animals from the Chinese zodiac, with 2017 being the year of the Rooster. For this year's celebration, we decided to head to Chinatown in New York City to experience the festivities first hand.  As we wandered through the closed streets of the neighborhood, we encountered dragon costumes, enthusiastic onlookers and plenty of confetti.  Below are some photos from the occasion.
