Lunar New Year 2021

Ancestry defines the cultural association and ethnic background of an individual going back three generations. The Chinese community contribute to the 3rd largest ancestry group in Canning.

One of their biggest celebrations is the Lunar New Year. 2021 Lunar New Year falls on February 12th and in terms of the Chinese zodiac animal, it is the year of the Ox. In many countries around the world, the 15-day celebration kicks off on New Year's Eve with a family feast called a reunion dinner and is culminated by the Lantern Festival which falls on the 26th of February.
