The Asian Lunar Festival brings all the Asian cultures together to celebrate their traditions by incorporating the typical foods, beverages and entertainment to honor their heritage.
The main event of the celebration is bringing in the Chinese New Year. This year 2013, is the year of the snake.
According to The Chinese zodiac calendar, each animal has a meaning. This year is the year of the snake and the meaning behind the year of the snake is the year of advances in Science, Education and Research. The predictions are that this year will be filled with new and different challenges and we should be open minded about it.
To me, it's always interesting to learn about other cultures and their traditions. I'm glad my family and I had the opportunity to enjoy the Chinese New Year with Malina and envolve her more with the traditions of China.
Here are some photos of us at the event.
