The 31st of January is the start of Chinese New Year, which is a 15 day celebration including feasts and decorations and ending with the Lantern Festival on the 15th Day!
London's celebrations for the Chinese New Year are one of the biggest outside of Asia, and every year thousands of people visit the West End to wish each other Happy New Year or "Kung Hei Fat Choi'
In 2014 the celebrations are taking place on Sunday the 2nd of February, in Chinatown, Trafalgar Square and Shaftsbury Avenue. If you fancy a fun day out go and get involved in the celebrations, which include a parade and performances from visiting artists from China in Trafalgar Square. As always and the part Ellie Ellie always loves exploring, there will be traditional food and craft stalls, perfect if you want to find hidden gems or something a bit unusual.
