According to legends Chinese New Year derives from the myth of the Nian, who came to scare the Chinese people at the start of the New Year. The Chinese soon realised he was scared of the colour red, and so every year people wear red to scare off bad luckand the monster! Everywhere is decorated with bright red decorations and people hang red lanterns at the door to scare off bad spirits.

Mester’s having a meal tonight to celebrate the New Year in the Erasmus bar and café. The meal’s at 9 followed by a special Chinese Party in Camelot afterwards. Everyone’s invited and we hope to see you there!

Happy New Year!
