Question: Over 200 million people will travel this year for what event?
A) Chinese New Year
Answer: Chinese New Year — which this year falls on January 22nd — TODAY!! Happy Lunar New Year!
200 million people from the Chinese mainland travel long distances for these holidays, and tens of millions of people travel in other countries too. This makes Chinese New Year the largest annual human migration in the world, known as the Spring Festival Travel Rush. For comparison, less than 100 million people travel more than 50 miles during the Christmas holidays in the US, according to the American Automobile Association.
Whether or not you plan on traveling during the 16 days of the Spring Festival, we’re glad you’re with us today as we begin a new journey together. This morning, Pastor Jill begins a new sermon series about the God we worship, called “The Trinity Changes Everything.”
