The celebration titled 'Happy Chinese New Year' was attended by Chairman of BiH Presidency Dragan Covic, Ambassador of China to BiH Chen Bo, BiH Defense Minister Marina Pendes, Mostar Mayor Ljubo Beslic and many others.
Chinese New Year starts on February 16th and it will be marked by many manifestations. Implementation of this project is supported by Embassy of the People's Republic of China in BiH, the Cabinet of BiH Presidency Chairman and Chinese citizens who live abroad.
Chinese New Year is riddled with supersitions i.e. things one should not do because they would affect the year ahead. Some of them are: avoid taking medicine, do not sweep or take out garbage, do not eat porridge and meat on breakfast, do not wash clothes or hair, etc.
