Happy Chinese New Year! 新年好

One of the most important festivals in China is the Chinese New Year. This year celebrates 4712 years according to their schedule, and will be represented by a horse. This animal is associated with stability, energy and optimism. 

The Chinese community has taken to the streets of Barcelona to celebrate this event with a crowded parade, full of traditional dances, colored dragons and noisy fireworks.
