China Night 2012

When: Saturday, January 28, 7:30 pm
Where: O'Laughlin Auditorium

Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is the most important traditional Chinese holiday. It is also an important holiday in East Asia. 2012 is the Year of Dragon. The Chinese year begins on January 23, 2012.

Chinese months are reckoned by the lunar calendar, with each month beginning on the darkest day. New Year festivities traditionally start on the first day of the month and continue until the fifteenth, when the moon is brightest. In China, people may take weeks of holiday from work to prepare for and celebrate the New Year.

On January 28, 2012, Saint Mary’s College held “China Night Program” to celebrate the holiday with the whole community. Our students and local community members performed Chinese dances, music, Kung Fu, fashion shows to create a happy holiday atmosphere. Saint Mary's women's choir shared their international exchange activities in China as well.

Members of the local Chinese/Chinese-American community help put on China Night.

Saint Mary's College has strengthened its international exchange relations with China. Study abroad opportunities to China include the China Semester Program and the China Summer program.
