Chinese New Year
When people celebrate it
Chinese New Year is on the first day of the first lunar month.
Where people celebrate it
People in the mainland of China, Hong Kong and big cities around the world celebrate it.
We help to clean our house before New Year starts. On New Year’s Eve, people go to the flower market to buy peach blossom and other flowers. At Chinese New Year, children are given red packets.
At Chinese New Year we eat a lot of delicious food such as turnip cake and rice cake.
Why it is enjoyable
We can buy new clothes to wear on New Year’s day and go to see the big street parade with our family. It is full of fun.
Come and join it for celebration!
