Time for new beginnings
Celebrating is not over yet - Chinese New Year began on Saturday, January 25th. If you’re from the Western world, you celebrate New year eve a couple of hours before the New Years' countdown and a couple of hours after. Everything is different in the Eastern part of the world, New Year doesn't have a fixed date, and the celebration lasts for weeks: this day announces the beginning of a festival called "Lunar New Year" or "Beginning of Spring."
This celebration is so important for the Chinese that it can be compared with a super combo of the most important holidays. Imagine celebrating New Year and Christmas and all the slavas in Serbia at the same time. It's a time when families traditionally gather and enjoy with a lot of good food and drinks.
Chinese Lantern Festival
If you want to experience the spirit of tradition and symbolism of ancient China, visit the second "Chinese Lantern festival." The festival's role is to bring new light and joy in our lives. For the first time, it is held in Novi Sad. From Thursday, January 23rd, people in Novi Sad can enjoy the magical light installations in Liman park. In Belgrade, the lanterns are waiting for you in Kalemegdan.
The exhibition is open till February 16th, the entrance is free, and the magic of lanterns starts every evening from 5 pm. Last year, the lantern groups had fairytale names: Miracle Deer, Panda, Seasons, The Penguin Whisper… we can't wait to see what they have in store for us this time.
