Origin of the Spring Festival
Only a grandmother living in the east end of the village gave the old man some food and advised him to flee to the mountains to avoid the monster.The villagers swarmed into the grandmother's house, only to find that the doors were covered with red paper, the embers from a pile of bamboo were still giving out exploding sounds in the courtyard, and a few candles were still glowing in the room...
Delicious Spring Festival Food
Given the importance of food in Chinese culture, it is not surprising that food plays a major role in Chinese New Year celebrations.This large ancestor of the grapefruit signifies abundance, as the Chinese word for pomelo sounds like the word for "to have."
