Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.
Tomorrow is the start of the Lunar New Year which is one of the biggest celebrations in Asia and nowhere is it celebrated on a grander scale than in China, where it’s better known as the Spring Festival. The Spring Festival is the most important traditional holiday in the People’s Republic of China. People from all over the country travel hundreds of miles to reunite with their loved ones and feast upon traditional dishes. Cities across the country are transformed into festive playgrounds. This photo was taken in Shanghai during last year’s celebration (The Year of the Horse) where every year, the Yu Garden is transformed into an even brighter and more colorful landscape as it’s filled with hundreds of lanterns.
Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
