Even though the actual Lunar New Year (Year of the Horse!) has come and gone (the actual date was Jan. 30th, talking about “belated”), this Lunar New Year celebration┬álast night co-hosted by almost all Asian student groups in Wesleyan still stirred up some festivity in this drizzly weather. Hosted annually, a Lunar New Year festival is becoming part of the Wesleyan tradition for most Asian students and for the entire Wesleyan community.

The ticket sale went very well, according to the organizer Tian Qiao ’15, one of the co-chairs of the Chinese Cultural Club, selling well beyond 100 tickets before the event. At $5, each person gets to enjoy a whole series of performances and a delicious meal. No wonder the event is sold out almost every year!

Decorated with red lanterns, Beckham hall was dressed in Chinese red, the classic color of Spring Festival. The sight of fesitivity coupled with the sweet smell of food instantly put smile on everyone’s face. A nice touch by the hosts, there were paper and scissors and scotch tapes on each table, with instructions on how to make a paper lantern. It was an easy and fun project, and taught the guests a little about this old Chinese craft. People experimented with it and chattered away as they waited for the show to begin.
