Chinese New Year


The New Year celebration is centred around removing the bad and the old, and welcoming the new and the good. It's a time to worship ancestors, exorcise evil spirits and pray for good harvest. Today it's celebrated also by Chinese communities outside the country.

CTSI has put together some useful posters to share with your communities to raise awareness around firework safety during the Chinese New Year celebrations. These can be found below.

Firework safety is important to prevent injury and also to observe legislation that is in place.

These posters have been translated into a number of languages and can be used by local authorities to share with community groups, local businesses and consumers both in person and online.
