The Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is the most important traditional holiday in China. It is also the most important celebration for families, and an official holiday week in the Asian country.
The global celebrations are an explosion of light and sound, involving bell ringing, lighting firecrackers and watching traditional lion dances. Chinese families gather together for a reunion dinner on New Year’s Eve, and clean their houses to sweep away bad fortune on New Year’s Day. Traditionally, kids would be given red envelopes stuffed with ‘lucky money’ and positive wishes on New Year’s Day.

Happy new year Xīn nián kuài lè!!! 新年快乐
