How is Chinese New Year celebrated?
Chinese New Year is a time for families to get together and celebrate new beginnings. The holiday is a two week festival filled with reunions among family and friends, an abundance of delicious food and wishes for a new year filled with prosperity, joy and good fortune. Traditionally, families get together within the first three days of New Year and pay respects to their ancestors. People travel from near and far to come together, with many people leaving the cities and flocking to the countryside. Nowadays, by the third or fourth day, young people prefer to spend the last few days of the holiday relaxing, catching up with friends and going on vacation. Customs around this festival have evolved over the years, but the older generations are very superstitious and take the customs and traditions seriously. Today, Chinese New Year is celebrated with fireworks and family dinners by more than a billion people around the world.
To greet the coming of the New Year, families will get outside to launch fireworks and firecrackers. According to tradition, the noise and bright color created by the firecrackers will drive away evil spirits.
For kids, collecting red envelopes from parents and relatives during Chinese New Year could be the happiest moment apart from a winter vacation free from school. Parents and grandparents should give their kids red envelopes packed with lucky money for good wishes on the evening of Chinese New Year.
Food symbolism plays an especially important role during Chinese New Year. Almost every dish that’s served on the tables carries a wish for good luck, many offspring or good health in the future. During the two weeks of celebration that follow, the feasting continues as friends and family share good tidings for the year ahead.
Lantern Festival is the fifteenth day of a new year which is according to the Chinese lunar calendar, the first full moon of the year. This day marks the Spring Festival Celebration ends here. People eat Tangyuan which symbolizes reunion and appreciate colorful lanterns on this day.
