The Yi people from Qiubei County in China’s Yunnan Province traditionally celebrate Face Painting Festival through the whole second month of the lunar calendar. People use black pigment to paint each other’s faces to express love and blessings.
The Laba Festival, which heralds the beginning of the Spring Festival, is still celebrated with some ancient customs.
Understanding the implication of Chinese cuisine names can add spice to a dinner, especially during the festival period.
