What is Chinese New Year and how is it celebrated?



How is Chinese New Year celebrated?


Chinese New Year (新年) is also known as the Spring Festival (春节). It is the most important festival of the year for every Chinese and has been celebrated in China for thousands of years.


The New Year celebration is centered around removing the bad and the old and welcoming the new and the good. It's a time to worship ancestors, exorcise evil spirits, and pray for a good harvest.


Today it's also celebrated by Chinese communities around the world. Lion dance, dragon dance, temple fairs, flower market shopping, and so on, are just a few of these rich and colorful activities.


As an important family reunion occasion, food and drinks are a crucial part of the New Year celebration. Members of the family sit around a big table to have the important New Year's Eve dinner. This is known as Nian Ye Fan (年夜饭).


Families burn incense to worship their ancestors. Older and senior members of the family give the younger ones good luck money known as Ya Sui Qian (压岁钱) contained in a red envelope (Hong Bao 红包).

Everyone would have a thorough bath and wash their hair, to cleanse themselves and wash away the bad luck, before the end of the year. Children and adults would change into new clothes, and shoes, have a haircut or new hairstyle and wear new outfits during the festive period.


At midnight on New Year's Eve, noisy firecrackers would be set off to usher in the New Year. On New Year's Day and the next 14 days that follow, (celebrations last 15 days), family and friends would visit each other's homes and offer good luck wishes to each other and exchange seasonal greetings (拜年), when they bow, smiling happy faces and with hands clasped together in front (作揖).
