Chinese New Year

A major traditional Chinese holiday that you certainly have to witness is the Chinese New Year. China’s biggest festival is also known as the Spring Festival. In bygone years this particular festival was a time of honouring ancestors and deities.

As the Chinese New Year is one of China’s most important holidays, it has a significant influence on the Lunar New Year celebrations of China’s neighbours.

Traditionally speaking the Chinese New Year celebrations begin on the first day of the month and it lasts until the fifteenth day.

In China it is very common for people to take extended holidays from work in order to prepare for the New Year and celebrate in style. During the New Year festivities red clothes are usually worn by those attending the Chinese New Year festival. Children are given lucky money that is placed in red envelopes and poems that have been written are decorated on red paper also.

According to legend – red, which symbolises fire, can drive away bad luck.
