What is Chinese New Year?
The Chinese New year "the Spring Festival " is the most important festival in China.
In the Spring Festival, all family members will get together, just like Chirstmas in the West. Its origin is ancient, but many believe the word "Nian", which means "year", was the name of a beast that preyed on people on the eve of a new year.
What we do during Spring Festival?
December 30th(Lunar Calendar), New Year's EVE: Family Reunion Dinner
On New Year's Eve, people who work far away will manage to go home, regardless of long-distance travel, so the "Grand Dinner on New Year's Eve is also called 'Family Reunion Dinner'. Every family will make the dinner the most sumptuous and ceremonious one in the year. Hostesses will fetch out prepared food and all family members will sit together and make dumplings in harmony. At twelve o'clock, every family will shoot off firecrackers to greet new days and send off old ones.
January 1st (lunar calendar): Paying a New Year's visit
Following the New Year's Eve is the first day of the Spring Festival, a day for paying a New Year's vist, during which people will be busy in giving best wishes to each other
During the Spring Festival, we can eat a lot of delicious food, and the food is different from some different places. For example，The northerners eat Jiao Zi, but southerners like to eat Nian Gao, which translates to "New Year Cake". In Chinese, Nian Gao is a homonym for high.
