The first day of the first month of the lunar calendar is the Chinese New Year. Among the traditional festivals in China, this is the most important and lively festival. Because it is the end of winter and the beginning of spring when the Lunar New Year is celebrated, people also call this festival “Spring Festival“.
Chinese people have many traditional customs during the Spring Festival. From the twenty-third of the twelfth lunar month, people start preparing for the New Year. During this period, every household has to clean up, buy new year’s goods, put up window grilles, hang up New Year’s pictures, write Spring Festival couplets, steam rice cakes, prepare all kinds of food, and prepare to bid farewell to the old and welcome the new.
New Year’s call is a traditional Chinese folk custom, and it is a way for people to bid farewell to the old year, welcome the new year, and express good wishes to each other. New Year’s greetings usually start at home. On the morning of the first day of the new year, after getting up, the younger generation should first pay New Year’s greetings to the elders, wishing the elders health, longevity and all the best. After the elders are worshiped, they should distribute the “lucky money” prepared in advance to the younger generations.
The eve of the Spring Festival is called “New Year’s Eve”. It’s kind of like your ‘Christmas Eve’. New Year’s Eve is a time for family reunions. The family sits together, eats a sumptuous New Year’s Eve dinner, talks and laughs until dawn, which is called keeping the year old. As soon as the bell rings at zero o’clock on New Year’s Eve, people still eat dumplings.
After New Year’s Eve is New Year’s Day. From the first day of junior high school, people have to visit relatives, visit friends, and pay New Year’s greetings to each other. Paying New Year greetings is an important custom during the Spring Festival. During the New Year greetings, everyone should say some auspicious words wishing happiness and health, and best wishes to the people around them.
