[Photos] Elementary schoolers celebrate the Lunar New Year with glutinous rice flour dumplings and lanterns

Fifth grader Miles Long savors his yuánxiāo after a long and meticulous culinary process. He screams out as the umami of the treat floods his senses. (Serena Travers)

Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations never shy away from festivity and delicious food. To learn and uphold the tradition, third, fourth, and fifth graders joined the National Chinese Honor Society (NCHS) for Yuánxiāo Night, on Feb. 20. NCHS members taught the participants how to prepare the classic snack. With their stomachs filled with 元宵 yuánxiāo (rice flour dumplings that also mean “first night”), students crafted beautiful 灯笼 dēnglóng (lanterns). Check out photos from this special Spring Festival.

    I used to do these events but I became a middle schooler which made me unable to join these events. So sad
