Spring Festival 2015

Published: February 24, 2015

These pictures were taken at the Spring Festival 2015 organized by a Chinese organization in Denmark called 丹麦华人总会 (dān mài huá rén zǒng huì).

The spring festival – 春节 (chūn jié) – is a celebration marking the beginning of a new year in the Chinese calendar. Each year is assigned one of twelve animal zodiac. The year 2015 is the year of the goat (2014 was the year of the horse). Apparently the year of the goat is associated with things like harmony and calmness. Let’s hope that is true.

Happy Chinese New Year!
