The Jimingshan community in Jiangdong sub-district, Yiwu held a Spring Festival event called "Our Festival" on Feb 6.

To enrich their Chinese New Year experience, foreign residents of the community donned traditional Tang suits and joined locals in eating special foods, making hand fans and lanterns, and writing couplets and words of blessing.

Community members also invited them into their homes to share meals, paste window flowers, and hang lanterns, allowing them to immerse themselves in Chinese New Year festivities and experience the charm of China's rich traditional culture.
