Chinese New Year Song for Kids

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! There is a famous legend that accompanies Chinese New Year about a monster named Nian (which is Mandarin for “year”). In ancient times, Nian terrorizes a town until an old man figures out that Nian is afraid of loud noises and the color red. That’s why today people wear red and shoot off firecrackers to celebrate the new year – to keep Nian at bay!

And, BGL Media wrote a song about it! It’s a good little ditty that has over 34k hits on YouTube!

Happy New Year!
