2018 Chinese New Year falls on Feb. 16. It is the Year of the Dog according to Chinese zodiac. It is a great chance to experience the folk customs! What do we need to do before the Spring Festival?
Before the Spring Festival, every family will have a thorough house cleanup and go for festival items shopping. The red spring couplets, red Fu Character, and red animal paper cut are pasted for decoration. Also, new clothes must be bought, especially for children. At the reunion dinner on Lunar New Year's Eve, people from north will eat dumplings, which southern people are used to have Niangao (glutinous rice cake). Red Envelopes are given to kids and elders to share the blessing.
Why is red color so popular? It's because red symbolizes hapiness, prosperity and good luck in Chinese culture.
Last night, we went to eat New Year's Eve with fun games and lucky draws. Top Joy partners wish you a happy new year 2018, all the best.
