Prague Rings in Chinese New Year

089More than 50 people gathered in our club in Prague to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Members of Prague’s branch were joined by people from other branches  to help with preparation and to celebrate. What’s more, honored guests from Prague 1, including the city manager and the director of the Centre of Social Services, came, too, and stayed with us whole afternoon. We were happy to serve and eat around six new round tables we purchased for the club at Christmas time. Everybody enjoyed a big menu prepared and cooked in the morning in the club´s kitchen: a two course menu accompanied by salad, spring rolls and homemade desserts. In the course of the banquet we learned all about the Year of Horse and what it brings, health benefits of tai chi, the meaning of coins in Chinese history, and more. After the raffle and a tai chi set, the club´s choir sang a new year‘s song “gong xi.” In the tradition of “what eyes see, hands do,” we cleaned up the club very fast. The Czech branch wishes all a very Happy New Year of the Horse.
