Last Friday was the 15th day of the Lunar New Year, also called ‘Yuanxiao Jie’(Lantern Festival),which is one of the most important traditional Chinese festivals. To celebrate this day, Chinese people eat “yuanxiao”,a kind of dumplings made from sticky rice and with sweet fillings,watch or make lanterns, and guess lantern riddles. The Lantern Festival usually concludes the New Year celebration.
Besides, we have a bigger event in Qingdao. The Tangqiu hui Fair! There we can taste snacks from all over China and see many traditional toys or artware. On Friday, 19 students and 4 teachers from XMandarin went there together, spent a relaxed day~
That' s our event last time.How do you like it? Isn't is interesting?Every month XMandarin hosts activities like this for foreigners in Qingdao and we would love that you come and join us!
See you next time!!
