        New Year's - Chinese Style | Georgia Stories

        Georgia's Chinese-American population took root when laborers came to Augusta in 1873 to dig a canal. They opened shops and gradually became part of the community, but they never forgot their traditions. One of the most festive and biggest holidays is Chinese New Year that begins on the first new moon of the lunar calendar, typically in late January or early February. According to tradition, this day sets the tone for the following year so people are careful to wear new clothes, eat good foods, and say the right things.
