On 12th February, our home celebrated Chinese New Year. We all had lots of fun embracing another culture by writing our names in Chinese, reading our fortune cookies and indulging in Chinese food. Some residents had never tried Chinese food so it was great for them to experience something new and also learn more about China with a quiz. We had Chinese music playing in the background and all of our residents received a beautifully painted fan to keep. Leading up to the day, we had our residents involved in making the decorations for the party. Lots of colourful lanterns were made and hung up on our ceiling and it was great to see so many people participating in the celebrations.
