Celebrate Chinese New Year with hampers
Published on 18/01/2012

Individuals planning to welcome in the Chinese New Year may want to give gifts of hampers to their friends and families.

The annual festival will be held on January 23rd this year and celebrations will take place across the UK.

Chinatown areas in cities such as Liverpool, Manchester and London will see people take to the streets in colourful parades and performances.

The event is based on the lunar and solar calendar with 2012 being the Year of the Dragon.

There are 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac and people born under the same sign are said to share similar characteristics.

On Sunday January 22nd, Chinatown in Liverpool will be the central hub of celebrations, while London will host festivities on January 29th.

Trafalgar Square will feature 100 performers, which will include the Chen Brothers who hold the Guinness World Record for the highest pole jump, as well as a firework display.
