HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR

Today is Chinese New Year's Day.  It's an important festival for 1/5 of the world population!  
Chinese families gather together for dinner on New Year's Eve and clean their houses to sweep away bad fortune on New Year's Day. Traditionally, kids are given red envelopes with "lucky money" and positive wishes on New Year's Day.

There are celebrations all over the world: fireworks, lighting firecrackers, traditional lion dances and great parades in many cities... even in Madrid!
One of the most popular figures in a Chinese parade is the dragon. Do you want to know more about them? Click on the image.

The anatomy of a Chinese dragon:


the head of a camel,
the horns of a stag (male deer),
the eyes of a demon,
the ears of a cow,
the neck of a snake,
the belly of a clam,
the scales of a carp,
the claws of an eagle,
the paws of a tiger.

2017 is the year of the ROOSTER
