|SIP IALA Community organized an event of cutting paper window decorations to greet the New Year on Jan 8. A few friends from the USA and Canada gathered joyously with the residents and cut paper window decorations, feeling the profound atmosphere of the festival.
Mike from the US said that he had learned to make rice dumplings and moon cakes in the community and this time, cutting paper window decorations added to his experience and understanding of traditional Chinese culture.
|Staff in SIP Zhongtang Community and teachers and students from Yi Bao Zhai, decorated as roosters, wrote Spring Festival couplets and the Chinese character "Fu" (meaning happiness) for the community residents.
Mark and his family from the UK also joined the activity. They tried to write couplets happily, experiencing the joys of Chinese New Year celebration.
