Lubbock Students Celebrate Chinese New Year

Today marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year and one local Lubbock school is marking the occasion.

Fourth and Fifth grade students at Miller Elementary School are participating in a Chinese New Year Celebration today. The students will be celebrating the “Year of the Horse” by making lanterns, fans and dragon masks.

The students are also using the traditional chopsticks to eat their lunches.

In China, the New Year celebration marks the world’s largest migration of people, as millions of Chinese take to the trains and airline system across China to attend celebrations with their families.

In a footnote to Texas history, the first Chinese American elected to the Texas Legislature was Tom Lee, who was elected in 1964 and represented a San Antonio district.
