Chinese new year is also called Spring Festival. This year the chinese new year will be this week February 18th.
For me this will be the 6th Chinese new year I haven’t been at home with my family. I miss them but it is also happy that I can celebrate Chinese new year with my friends here. Here is a little introduction for you who may not know what is a Chinese new year.
Spring Festival is the most important festival in China .It’s to celebrate the lunar calendar’s new year. In the evening before the Spring Festival, families get together and have a big meal. In many places people like to set off firecrackers after dinner or at midnight. Dumplings are the most traditional food .Children like the festival very much, because they can have delicious food and wear new clothes. They can also get some money from their parents. This money is given to children for good luck. People put New Year scrolls on the wall for good fortune.
The Spring Festival lasts about 15 days long .People visit relatives and friends with the words “Have all your wishes ”.People enjoy the Spring Festival ,during this time they can have a good rest .
This year I will making homemade dumplings with my friends and watching the celebration TV shown. Wish all the best!
