Gervinho celebrates 2018 Chinese New Year — EXTRA TIME

"Lunar New Year is a unifying celebration of our multiculturalism", Ms Berejiklian said in a statement.

Every year, the Chinese New Year starts on the new moon occurring between January 21 and February 20.

People around the globe are ringing in the Chinese New Year.

Lunar New Year is being celebrated in China and other southeast Asian countries.

It's China's biggest holiday, and students here in the East chose to hold their own celebration.

"It is the start of our 2018 celebrations of my favourite year, the year of the dog, because I am a great dog enthusiast".

Senior Andrea Delin prepares the traditional red envelopes to hand out to the members for this celebration. Chinese New Year lasts 15 days. The Chinese Lunar New Year also known as the Spring Festival, which is based on the Lunisolar Chinese calendar, is celebrated from the first day of the first month of the lunar year and ends with Lantern Festival on the fifteenth day. Families also clean their house to sweep away any ill-fortune and make way for incoming good luck.

This year marks the year of the dog, one of the 12 animals in the Chinese astrological chart.

The American people join with those in Asia and around the world in welcoming the Year of the Dog, Trump said.

The show is laden with praise for the ruling Communist Party and its policies, especially on culture and ethnic relations, and its portrayals of China's own ethnic minorities, particularly Muslim Uighurs from the northwestern region of Xinjiang, have sometimes been derided as crude.

"The year 2017 was a landmark year for China", said Zhang, who explained that the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China held in October "mapped out the blueprint for China's development in the coming 30 years, opening up a new era for China's development and modernization".

"(Lunar New Year) is important to me, because it brings back a lot of memories", Chu said.
