Festival, also called the Chinese New Year is the biggest festival in our
country. It comes between late January and the middle of February. Every
Chinese enjoys this festival very much.
Spring Festival, we have seven days off. We usually get together with our
families on New Year’s Eve. We have so many delicious dishes, such as chicken,
duck, fish, meat and so on. But we consider fish as our major dish, since
having fish represents a wish that we will be prosperous in the next year.
However, people in the north often eat dumplings. It means to ring out the old
and usher in the new year. After supper, we always watch TV programs, the
Spring Festival Gala is the tradition. Or we also play fireworks outside. On
the first New Year's Day, we always pay New Year’s visit to our relatives and
friends, so as to exchange our best regards with each other.
