The China Spring Festival and Junkanoo reunite families together

February 03, 2016

NASSAU, Bahamas -- President of the Bahamas China Friendship Association, Anthony Capron said the one thing that the Chinese Spring Festival and The Bahamas' Christmas Junkanoo season have in common is that they bring families together.
Mr. Capron brought remarks at a reception celebrating 2016 China Spring Festival held by the invitation of His Excellency Yuan Guisen Ambassador of the People's Republic of China to the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and Madame Yang Hong at the British Colonial Hilton, Sunday, January 31, 2016.
Mr. Capron said, "Here, the children come home from being away in school, as well as relatives living and working abroad. And that is what is being seen all across China today as the Spring Festival rush is on and millions of travellers are clogging the transportation system as they hurry home to reunite with their families."
He noted that the Chinese people in this modern era are among the leaders in the world when it comes to talk about history, culture and traditions. "Who else in this day and time can trace their festivals back more than 4,000 years?"
The Association's President said this New Year holiday, which is also known as the Spring Festival, is the longest holiday period in China and last for 15 days. This year it will end on February 22.
