LHASA - For Yuzhoin, a young
Tibetan mother, Sunday was a rare opportunity for a double celebration as the
Chinese traditional Spring Festival and the first day of the Tibetan New Year
fell on the same day this year.
Yuzhoin, whose father is Han Chinese and mother is Tibetan, celebrated the
two festivals according to the different customs of the two ethnic groups.
"On the eve of the Tibetan New Year and Spring Festival, our whole family
gathered together and had "Jiaozi", a Han Chinese tradition," said Yuzhoin.
The family then prepared Tibetan food such as dough balls, dried beef and
butter tea on Sunday.
