Oriental New Year
On the night from the 7th to the 8th of February Oriental New Year is celebrated.
This year Oriental New Year falls on the night from the 7th to the 8th of February. This evening people will gather with their families in China, Vietnam, Korea, Mongolia, Singapore and some other countries. In Vietnam on a table there will be square rice pie of Ban Chongg, in Korea - hot soup Ttokkuk with trickled pastries, in China - pelmeni and special cakes. The name of the holiday differs in every country– somewhere it is the Holiday of Spring, somewhere it is called Thetas, somewhere Sollal. Nevertheless, despite all distinctions, everybody wants to spend this holiday with relatives and hope for good luck and pleasure in new year.
We congratulate everyone on this holiday, and hope that new year will bring piece and prosperityto to all of us.
