Lunar New Year celebrations have often been associated with end-of-harvest celebrations  during which the Chinese community would offer thanks to the deities for a bountiful harvest and pray for good fortune. Many of these practices became formalised during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD), with Lunar New Year celebrations gaining popularity during the Tang Dynasty (618 AD - 907 AD). 

 

Visit the Memorial Hall’s festive travelling exhibition to gain a deeper understanding of the origins, legends, and customs of one of the most celebrated festivals in the Chinese calendar. Free craft activities will be available at Library@Chinatown on 1 February as part of Wan Qing Festival of Spring 2020 celebrations.

 

The exhibition is available at Library@Chinatown from 6 January to 10 February 2020.
