Last week the Chinese International Students had a wonderful celebration for the Spring Festival 2012. The celebration ceremony was held in Memorial Auditorium, and there were more than 400 students and 100 performers participated in the ceremony. That was one of the biggest ceremonies over the whole year.

The Spring Festival actually is the Chinese New Year. In Chinese, other than the international calendar, Chinese people have a traditional calendar. The day of the spring festival begins is the New Year’s Day in Chinese traditional calendar. The spring festival lasts for around 2 weeks starting from that day. In the ceremony, we had traditional Chinese dancing, poem writing, as well as jazz singing and modern dancing.

The ceremony enriched OU’s diversity, and served as a good chance for all students from other countries to know more about Chinese cultures. Welcome all you guys to come to the Spring Festival next year!
