February 5, 2019
The Year of the Pig is upon us! And communities across Asia are ringing in the Lunar New Year. In China, millions of people watched the China Media Group Spring Festival Gala. It's the most popular TV show in this country of 1.3 billion people. The gala featured performances that would rival any Super Bowl halftime show. At a temple in Beijing, the celebration was more sedate, as crowds lined up to pray and burn incense.
