Spring Festival – The New Year of China

In the Spirit of The Chinese New Year, also known as The Spring Festival, I would like to share a few pictures from around Zhuhai – some decoration.

You will notice some pictures have tangerine trees. Buying and keeping  tangerine tree is supposed to bring luck to the family. People also tie money bags or money envelopes to them (some just put empty ones, some put a 1 yuan note inside). 

Children and unmarried young people get “lucky money” (red envelopes with some money inside). Everyone gets at least 1 week off work or more. Firecrackers can be heard from a week before the Spring Festival, throughout the first week after – and 2 weeks after during the Lantern Festival

Everything gets decorated, houses are thoroughly cleaned, new clothes are bought. If you are born under the current animal (Chinese Zodiac that corresponds to the Year coming), you have to wear red underclothes during the actual day of the Spring Festival and some wear during whole year for good luck.

If you are looking for a simple activity for Chinese New Year, visit this post I made – Chinese New Year Snake Craft. It is super easy and suitable for different age groups!

I wish you all a lovely Spring Festival (if you are celebrating) and a wonderful Year of the Snake ahead!
