Celebrations for Chinese people are of great traditional significance and include a ritual cleaning of their houses and visit to the temple, but also involve feasting with the family, celebration, fireworks, and gift-giving.
The East India Company, which was importing popular Chinese commodities such as tea, ceramics and silks, and bringing Asian sailors too, needed trustworthy intermediaries to arrange the sailors' care and lodgings while they were in London.He marked the beginning of a steady flow of students from China, encouraged by educational reformer Zhang Zhidong who believed Western learning was needed to reverse China's fortunes and help it to catch up with the rest of the world.Many Chinese graduates did indeed return to make a significant contribution to their country, but some stayed.The first settlement of Chinese people in the United Kingdom dates from the early 19th century.Because many of the Chinese settlers were originally seamen, the first settlements started in the port cities of Liverpool, Cardiff and London.
Celebrations in London are famous for colourful parades, fireworks, and street dancing.
