The traditional Kuoshi Festival of the Lisu people was celebrated in Weixi County, Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture on December 20. Wearing gorgeous ethnic costumes, the Lisu folks had merry singing and dance around bonfires in the evening.


 

In Lisu language, "Kuo" means "year" and "Shi" means "new." For the Lisu, the festival is equivalent to the Spring Festival celebrated by China's majority Han population. Officially, the festival lasted for three days from Dec. 20-24, but the festivities can last for an entire month.
