New Year’s Eve CountdownDecember 31 countdown to midnight and we start the New Year with a bang! Firecrackers and lively Lion dance moves throughout Yokohama Chinatown to welcome the New Year.
Chinese New YearJanuary 1 of the Chinese lunar calendar typically corresponds to a date in February on the western calendar. On the eve of Chinese New Year, we seek protection from Mazu for a safe year ahead by walking under our Heavenly Mother’s palanquin to ward off evil.
