February is known as the "month of LOVE", but it has been so much more! This month we have celebrated Valentine's Day, Black History Month, and the Chinese Lunar New Year, the year of the TIGER, and much more.
CASA Kids Celebrate the Lunar NEW Year - the Year of the Tiger:
This month the CASA Kids Paint Night will be filled with a celebration of the Chinese New Year - the year of the TIGER. Celebrated on February 12th, this holiday is recognized as a connection to culture and tradition. The color red is known during this holiday as well as dragons, lions, and other events in a "Spring Festival" - making red envelopes for money is recognized as a gift during this holiday.
The CASA kids will learn a little about Chinese brush work and make their own envelopes with the "Happy Chinese New Year message".
