The Spring Festival is one of the most solemn and distinctive traditional festivals in China. Generally refers to New Year’s Eve and the first day of the first lunar month, which is the first day of the year. It is also called the lunar year, commonly known as “Chinese New Year”. Starting from Laba or Xiaonian to the Lantern Festival, it is called Chinese New Year.
Spring Festival HistoryHappy Chinese New year
The Spring Festival has a long history. It originated from the primitive beliefs and nature worship of early humans. It evolved from the sacrifices at the beginning of the year in ancient times. It is a primitive religious ceremony. People will hold sacrifices at the beginning of the year to pray for a good harvest and prosperity in the coming year. People and animals thrive. This sacrificial activity gradually evolved into various celebrations over time, eventually forming today’s Spring Festival. During the Spring Festival, China’s Han and many ethnic minorities hold various activities to celebrate. These activities are mainly about worshiping ancestors and respecting the elderly, praying for thanksgiving and blessings, family reunion, cleaning up the old and bringing in the new, welcoming the new year and receiving good fortune, and praying for a good harvest. They have strong national characteristics. There are many folk customs during the Spring Festival, including drinking Laba porridge, worshiping the Kitchen God, sweeping dust, pasting Spring Festival couplets, pasting New Year pictures, pasting blessing characters upside down, staying up late on New Year’s Eve, eating dumplings, giving New Year’s money, paying New Year greetings, visiting temple fairs, etc.
Spring Festival cultural communication

From Africa and Egypt to South America and Brazil, from the Empire State Building in New York to the Sydney Opera House, the Chinese Lunar New Year has set off a “Chinese style” all over the world. The Spring Festival is rich in content and has important historical, artistic and cultural value. In 2006, Spring Festival folk customs were approved by the State Council and included in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage lists.
