Feb. 9, 2018

What you didn't know about Chinese New Year with Ms. Joyce Zhao, Head of Mandarin!

The Spring Festival is a traditional Chinese Lunar New Year which has a history of over 4,000 years. The Spring Festival is a time to pray for the year. Spring Festival is also a time for family reunion. On New Year's eve, the family gathers together to eat the "New Year's eve dinner", and the elders hand out "lucky money" to the children. The family sits together waiting for the new year coming. Spring Festival is also a festival for public entertainment. During the Spring Festival, various activities are launched: lion dance, dragon lantern dance, yangko dance, etc., which adds a strong festive atmosphere to the Spring Festival. The Spring Festival is the most ceremonious traditional festival of the Chinese nation. It is the annual carnival of the Chinese nation and the eternal spiritual pillar. 

春节是中国传统上的农历新年,中国人过春节已有4000多年的历史。春节是祭祝祈年的日子。春节也是合家团圆的日子。除夕,全家欢聚一堂,吃“年夜饭”,长辈给孩子们分发“压岁钱”,一家人团坐“守岁”。春节也是民众娱乐狂欢的节日。春节期间,各种丰富多彩的娱乐活动竞相开展:耍狮子舞龙灯扭秧歌等,为新春佳节增添了浓郁的喜庆气氛。春节是中华民族最隆重的传统佳节,是中华民族一年一度的狂欢节和永远的精神支柱。
