The oldest and most important festival in China is the Spring Festival, which marks a new year on the lunar calendar. The Spring Festival represents the desire for a newlife.
It's called the Spring Festival because it marks the beginning of spring and the end of winter.
Throughout history, the Spring Festival had different names at different times. By far the most popular name is 'Yuan Dan', which means 'beginning' and 'morning', implying the beginning of a new spring and a new year.
There are many celebrations during the Spring Festival including the worship of gods and the Buddha, paying respects to the ancestors, general house cleaning, welcoming the god of wealth and sending away hungry ghosts.
I made this to introduce Chinese New Year as we learn Chinese Culture. I hope you enjoy using it, as well!
