Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is the most important traditional festival and a public holiday in China. The Chinese New Year 2012 starts in January 22 (Chinese New Year' Eve) and marks the year of dragon. The festival falls on the first day of the first Chinese month (usually in late January and early February), and ends with Lantern Festival which is on the 15th day.
This year, the Adult Day Care Health Center at Rutland Nursing Home will be celebrate this momentous occasion on Monday, February 6th, with a mini-lantern festival, including traditional performers from The Chinese Performing Group of Brooklyn.

Rutland's Adult day health care center is located on the campus of Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center.
