First New Year abroad
Lianjia Zhao

This is my first New Year abroad and I will be particularly homesick. But, like Christmas, Southampton creates a very festive atmosphere for the Lunar New Year. The lights on city streets and the New Year decorations available in supermarkets embody Chinese elements. This is a very special New Year.
