Bullis's Lunar New Year Celebration: A Showcase of Talent and Culture

The Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year, is one of the most significant celebrations in Chinese culture. This occasion marks the beginning of a new year on the lunisolar calendar and is a time for family reunions, festivities, and renewal. It's an important holiday in China and is also widely celebrated in South Korea, Vietnam, and countries with a significant overseas Chinese population.
