On Friday, February 16th Chinese Honors Society celebrated New Years- the Chinese New Year that is. Last Friday, members of the C.H.S had the Red Envelope project to kick off the year of the dog.

 

The year of the dog basically is a type of Chinese Zodiac, the year of the dog though determines different characteristics than the year of the rooster. If you were born in a year of the dog one of your most prominent characteristics would be loyalty.

 

Also, this zodiac determines if you give good advice and if you aren’t anxious. The Chinese New Year might even be important to Trump, as he was born in a year of the dog. A statue was even built with Donald’s famous hairstyle to celebrate.

 

However, many people don’t understand how the Chinese New Year came to be.

 

First of all, a beast named Nian once terrorized a village and ate children and villagers who weren’t hiding in their homes.

 

Then, an old man came and made the beast go away, as he grew tired he told the villagers to paint everything red, hang lanterns across the village, and make fireworks go off.

 

This was all to scare off the beast. Hence, the Red Envelope project, which is pretty much a gift of money.

 

The red symbolizes what was used to scare off the beast and money symbolizes luck and prosperity.

 

On an off day where it isn’t a holiday, Ms. Huang and her club members prepare for the Foreign language competition.

 

You can join the club without taking Chinese but she encourages you to do so because Chinese she feels will be extremely necessary in the future.

 

This is due to the fact of China’s booming economy in the 21st century.

 

“ The club really is about promoting the Chinese language learning” said Huang.

 

 To celebrate the Chinese New Year Huang stayed at her house with family and friends and enjoyed wonderful cuisine. Also Huang supposedly was going to have a dragon parade on February 15th to preview the Chinese New year in a way.
