The Little Year (小年 / xiǎo nián) marks the beginning of the preparation for the Lunar New Year. From this day, people begin to prepare goods, clean house, pray to the stove god, etc. People carry out a ‘winter-cleaning’ of their houses to "sweep away the dust", and represents a wish to put away old things, bid farewell to the old year, and welcome in the New Year.
Start off the year with your very own winter cleaning and come join the Center for Global Engagement to drop off any items you would like to give away. Embrace a new year and new you! Donations will be redistributed to a local charity association.
This event is part of the Center for Global Engagement series
