    Spring Festival

     Spring Festival is one of the most important traditional festivals in China. It

    s like Christmas in western countries. When the New Year is coming, everybody is trying to go home together with their family. We set off firecrackers, and we will wear new clothes. Children like the festival very much, because we can get

    some money from our relatives. In the northern China, dumping is necessary for the Chinese New Year meal, while in southern provinces, people play dragon dance and lion and dance. Both are fantastic for watching. As there are many Chinese are living overseas, Chinese New Year is becoming more and more popular around the world. I hope that, we can have a happy life in this year, and everyone can be happy!

    The Lunar New Year is a great occasion to the Chinese people. It lasts about the first four days of the year, during which people do not work except for the workers on duty. Students do not go to school, and shops are closed.

     Several days before the new year, people begin to prepare. Farmers kill pigs, sheep, cocks and hens. City dwellers buy meat fish and vegetables. Houses are cleaned; coupletsare posted on the doors. Colourful lanterns are hung at the gate.

     On the eve of the new year, each family has its members gatherd together and eats a family reunion dinner. After the meal they watch TV until the clock strickes twelve. Then every family sets off long strings of small firecrackers and other fire works to welcome the new year. On the first day of the new year, almost everyone is dressed in his or her best. When people meet on the way, they say to each other "Happy New Year". Friends and relatives pay new year calls and gives presents to each other. Children indulge themselves in games.

     New Year's Eve, when the table sumptuous dishes surrounded Zhang smiling face, clink sound of laughter, interwoven into a festive atmosphere. His younger brother to see her father to drink, and drink. Argue there is no way, Dad had no choice but to his sparkling. Sweet sparkling wine, my brother sitting there, taste, and seem to drink, can not say.

After a mellow with drink, no one was moving Cup, and can be said to laughter of the "voice" and "rhythm" has slowly increased.
