Nigeria Marks Chinese Lunar New Year in Early Celebrations

Crowds gathered in Lagos, Nigeria, on Sunday for an early Lunar New Year celebration.

The first day of the lunar calendar is known as the Chinese New Year, and there are several cultural customs associated with this spring celebration.

It is one of the most important holidays in Chinese culture, and many people return home to see their families.

The event was held by the Chinese Consulate General in Lagos.

Yan Yuqing, Consul General of China in Lagos, stated that the Spring Festival is a global celebration.

“Last year, the United Nations stated that the festival will be international. So I am overjoyed that people from all over the world, including Nigeria, can come together to celebrate the New Year with Chinese people,” she added.

Mike Anjorin, an architect attending the festival in Lagos, expressed his belief that Nigerians might learn from the Chinese.

“They celebrate their culture, which keeps them together and helps them develop. We’ve abandoned our culture. “A man who loses his culture dies.”

In China, the festivities begin next Saturday, bringing in the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese zodiac, and will conclude with the Lantern Festival on February 24.
