How is Chinese New Year Celebrated?

How is Chinese New Year Celebrated?

KUNG HEI FAT CHOI! ( Happy New Year) Did you know that Chinese New Year is a very important time of the year, because that’s when everyone comes together. They come together to eat traditional food with their families. Have you ever wondered why Chinese people Celebrate Chinese New Year?

Chinese people believe that there was a legend about a monster called Nian. The monster Nian only comes out in the darkest night of the full moon and when the full moon is in a disguise. Nian would sneak into the village and scare the people and the animals.

But one day there was a man, that taught them Nians weakness. Nians weakness was loud noises, Fire and the color Red. One day Nian came back and when he got there he was frightened, because the people we're wearing red clothes head to toe and drumming the dram loudly, and they lit up all the firecracker they had.

Instead of wrapped gifts that they give on Christmas, kids get red envelopes stuffed with lucky money in it from, grandparents, parents and many more. The happy fact is that kids are allowed to spend their money as much as they want.

Other countries might not have Chinese New Years as a public holiday, but they still celebrate on roads and in the cities.
