Happy Lunar New Year 2016!

2016_LunarNewYearMonkeyOn Feb 8th, the NYC Department of Education will observe the Lunar New Year holiday by closing offices and schools. We look forward to celebrating the Lunar New Year with P.S. 32 students during the Lunar New Year Performance happening on Friday, February 12th.

The Lunar New Year is one of the most important holidays celebrated in many Asian countries, including China, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines, Cambodia, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, India, Mongolia, Indonesia, and Taiwan. In each country, it may take on a different name (Tết in Vietnam….Seollal in Korea…Losar in Tibet).

The date of the New Year changes each year, as it is based on the lunar calendar. This year it begins on February 8, 2016. The holiday is 15 days long and ends with the Lantern Festival on February 22, 2016.

This year is the Year of the Monkey!

What are Monkeys like? Monkeys are clever, inventive, energetic, sociable and funny. Monkeys are curious and great problem solvers! You are a monkey if you were born in the year 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968,1956, 1944, 1932, or 1920….

2016_RedCardLunarNewYearsTo get ready for the New Year, families will hang special poems, get haircuts, clean the house, and decorate with bright colors. On the New Year, people will wear new clothes, honor their ancestors, visit friends and family, and celebrate over a huge feast.
