The Spring Festival is the most important traditional festival of the Chinese nation. It not only embodies the Chinese nation's ideological beliefs, ideal wishes, life entertainment and cultural psychology, but also is a carnival show of blessing, food and entertainment.
The Spring Festival is a happy and peaceful festival, a day of family reunion, and a carnival and eternal spiritual pillar for people to express their happiness and freedom. Before the Spring Festival, people who have left their hometowns should return home as much as possible to reunite with their loved ones and share their family fun. On New Year's Eve, the whole family gathered together to eat the "New Year's Eve dinner ". The elders distributed the "Lucky Money" to the children. During the festival, friends and relatives visit each other to celebrate the feelings and good wishes of relatives and friends for the new year.
Although the Spring Festival is scheduled for the first day of the first lunar month, the activities of the Spring Festival are not limited to the first day of the first month. From the twenty-three (or twenty-four) day of the twelfth lunar month, people began to "busy years": sacrifice stoves, sweeping dust, buying new year's goods, posting red couplets, shampooing, bathing, etc. All of these activities have a common theme, namely, "ring out the old year and ring in the new."
