Reformed Church Home believes in celebrating the diversity of our residents and embracing the traditions that bring us together. Our recent Chinese New Year celebration was a two-day extravaganza on February 9th and 10th that was a delightful experience for all.
Fun Facts About Chinese New Year:
Did you know that the Chinese Zodiac is based on a twelve-year cycle, with each year represented by an animal sign? This year is the Year of the Dragon, a symbol of power, strength, and good luck. Just like the dragon, our seniors demonstrated resilience and the ability to overcome life’s challenges with grace.
Red is the predominant color during Chinese New Year, symbolizing luck, and prosperity.
Firecrackers and dragon dances were a common sight during the celebration, believed to ward off evil spirits and bring good fortune.
One could not celebrate Chinese New Year without indulging in some mouthwatering cuisine. Our talented chefs crafted a special menu that combined traditional Chinese dishes with a senior-friendly twist. Residents savored classics like stir fry and egg rolls, all with a mindful consideration of dietary preferences and needs. It was yummy!
Residents also indulged in happy hour where we served refreshing drinks, including traditional Chinese tea and some delicious non-alcoholic options.
At Reformed Church Home, we are proud to honor the rich traditions of Chinese New Year. Our residents enjoyed a time to relax, mingle with friends, and enjoy the company of all that were present. We welcome the Year of the Dragon with open arms and joyful hearts!
