Chinese New Year’s Eve

Dragon - Pingyao

I saw this dragon in Pingyao, not Beijing. Pingyao is west of Beijing. It’s a historic city with lots of character. A former banking center, Pingyao-ites take pride in their city’s Qing era architecture, which fills its beautiful city center.

Chinese New Year is nothing like the Western one. It’s called Spring Festival in Mandarin and it’s a time to return to your home town, celebrate family and honor the ancestors.
