Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar is in China right now and as the country celebrates the Chinese New Year, our very own Miss Chhillar also dived headlong into the festivities. Chhillar is very active on social media and keeps her fans and followers updated about her travels and experiences around the globe.

Currently, her feed is full of happy, cheery posts from China that is engrossed in festivities that will continue for the next 15 days.

Among pool parties and felicitation functions, Manushi got the time to wish a Happy New Year to China, and she did that with a whole lot of sweetness.

Doesn't that look delicious? The Chinese rang in the Year of the Dog today, that is, February 16th, with traditional reunion feasts being held in Chinese households across the globe on Thursday. A traditional Chinese New Year dinner is held on the evening preceding the first day of the year and is called Nian Ye Fan. It's an opportunity for family and friends to get together for an annual celebration and offer gratitude to local deities. The windows and doors of houses are decked up with red-colored paper cut-outs. (Also Read: Chinese New Year 2018: Celebrations, Myths And Top 5 Traditional Foods Served On New Year's Eve)

Incidentally, Sanya was the city where Manushi was crowned Miss World last year, and India got a moment to be proud of at the global beauty pageant stage, after 17 long years.
