New Year traditions from around the world will be the topic at the next Cultural Conversations gathering on Tuesday, Jan. 17, 1-2:30 p.m. at Crossroads Community Center, 16000 NE 10th St. Women with diverse backgrounds will share tea, treats and stories about past new year’s celebrations in faraway places.
Celebration of a new year may follow the Western calendar, a lunar calendar where each year calendar dates vary, or dates tied to religious observances. The January program will include a preview of the 2023 Lunar New Year, the “Year of the Rabbit,” celebrated globally on Sunday, Jan. 22. Bellevue residents Gazel Tan and Angela Cheung will share their traditions and ways that we might participate locally.
Cultural Conversations, a program in its 13th season, has transformed relationships and perspectives among diverse women in our community through education and storytelling, by providing a safe space for community connection.
