BEIJING Justin Jones Chargers Jersey , Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- With great verve and passion, Chinese people around the world have celebrated their Lantern Festival in both traditional and trendy ways.

The festival, which fell on Feb. 22 this year, brought an end to this year's Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations. It is the day when people see themselves starting a new life in a new year.

In China, Lantern Festival is an important family day, but unlike Spring Festival when people stay home for family dinners, it is a day for going out and about.


In southwest China's Sichuan Province Rayshawn Jenkins Chargers Jersey , 20 dragon dance troupes gathered in Luxian County. A team of dancers under a long dragon "costume" painted red or gold used poles to manipulate the dragon's head and serpentine "body." They danced to the accompaniment of drums, twisting the dragon as it "danced," shaking its head and swinging its tail through the crowds.

Another folk dance, "Yangge," was performed on Monday morning in Yan'an city, the "red cradle" of the Chinese revolution in northwest China's Shaanxi Province. Staging the dance on Lantern Festival has become a tradition in the city. This year, about 3 Dan Feeney Chargers Jersey ,000 performers in bright costumes with colorful umbrellas, fans and red ribbons danced to local folk music and drums.


The Lantern Festival dates back to the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - 24 AD). Lanterns are almost always red, the color of good fortune in China. But today people are using new techniques to decorate their lanterns, adding fashionable new elements to an old tradition.
