They often go to the parks or go shopping. They are very happy in the Spring Festival. 2

  4. Lantern's Day The 15th day of the 1st lunar month is the Chinese Lantern’s Day, because the first lunar month is called yuan-month and in the ancient times people called night Xiao. The 15th day is the first night to see a full moon. So the day is also called “Yuan Xiao Festival” in China. According to the Chinese tradition, at the very beginning of a new year, when there is a bright full moon hanging in the sky, there should be thousands of colorful lanterns hung out for people to appreciate. At this time, people will try to solve the puzzles on the lanterns and eat glutinous rice ball and get all their families united in the joyful atmosphere. 3

  5. Dragon Boat Festival Dragon Boat Festival is a traditional Chinese Festival held on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar. It has since been celebrated, in various ways, in other parts of East Asia as well, most notably Korea. The exact origins of Duan Wu are unclear, but one traditional view holds that the festival memorializes the Chinese poet Qu Yuan of the Warring States Period. He committed suicide by drowning himself in a river because he was disgusted by the corruption of the Chu government. The local people, knowing him to be a good man, decided to throw food into the river to feed the fishes to prevent them from eating Qu Yuan’s body. They also sat on dragon boats, and tried to scare the fishes away by the thundering sound of drums aboard the boat and the fierce looking dragon-head in the front of the boat. In the early years of the Chinese Republic, Duan Wu was also celebrated as "Poets' Day", due to Qu Yuan's status as China's first poet of personal renown. Today, people eat zongzi (the food originally intended to feed the fishes) and race dragon boats in memory of Qu Yuan’s dramatic death. 4
