2013 CHINESE NEW YEAR AND LANTERN FESTIVAL GALA
Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. Chinese New Year's Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck.
