  As the Lunar Chinese New Year is approaching, 16 international friends from 12 countries including the United States, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and Iraq, went to Zhenhai of Ningbo in Zhejiang Province on January 18th to experience the New Year's customs in southern China and feel the unique charm of traditional Chinese culture.

  Loko from Canada has been in China for 12 years. He not only speaks fluent Chinese, but also speaks some authentic Ningbo dialect. At the event, Loko learned to make sugar paintings. He scooped up a spoon of sugar juice, and then slowly poured it back and forth on the chopping board. After a while, a "fat" crab was drawn.

  "In the first year I came to Ningbo, I didn't know what the Chinese New Year was. Now I feel that the New Year is all about the color of red and festive atmosphere. It's a very happy occasion for family members to get together for reunion dinner and chat." Loko said.

  Ryan from the United States has traveled all over China, and his deepest impression of the Chinese New Year is enthusiasm, "I like China very much. In recent years, I have felt the enthusiasm and friendliness of Chinese friends. During the New Year, everyone eats delicious food together, which is very interesting. ."

  A delicious reunion dinner is always a must for Chinese New Year. After the event, these international friends sat around the Baxian table, tasted special delicacies, and toasted together to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year.
