QUIZ: Lunar New Year Trivia & Celebration


Happy Lunar New Year! The Year of the Dragon (or Naga in Thailand) is just around the corner. Lunar New Year is a fifteen-day celebration welcoming the arrival of Spring and is widely celebrated across Asian countries including China, South Korea, North Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar. Rather than following the Gregorian calendar, the Lunar New Year starts on the first day of the first lunar month on the Chinese lunisolar calendar and this year it begins on February 10th.

It's a time for family, food, and festivity! Frisco is celebrating Lunar New Year with a Night Market Festival. The Library will be there along with other community groups. We hope to see you there as well!
