Spring festival sounds wonderful. What a charming idea to celebrate the end of winter! We don't have a spring festival like this in the west - the Americans tend to celebrate the harvest in autumn (thanksgiving), and in Europe we have a mid-winter festival to cheer everyone up (it is now called Christmas, but in reality Christmas is a very ancient festival which used to be called Saturnalia, which dates back to Roman times, and which is held on the same day as in the Roman era, 25th Dec). Can you tell us a bit more about Spring Festival? How did it originate?

Now in china, young guys are also celebrating christmas, and even thanksgiving day. Spring Festival, Chungjie, a feast for spring. The same as New Year, Xinnian. There are many legends related to the xin nian. One is told like this: In the ancient times, there was a monster called NIAN (the word year) always came out to hurt the villagers during the winter end. So farmers used fireworks, horns, drums etc to expel the monster. Later on, such actions became the xin nian (new year) feast.
