Thanks your new year blessing. On January 25, is the Chinese new year eve, this time defers to the Chinese old calendar computation, also is called the Spring Festival, because, crossed this festival, spring quickly came. This holiday had several millennium histories in China. This is a holiday which China most receives takes, also is each family reunion holiday. This time, all transportations all quite are intense every year, because all people all strive for are going home at this time. On 25th to 26th connection time, the people can set off the firecrackers and the fireworks pack off an old year, greets the new year. This time night, is very unique, the huge sound and the dazzling fireworks, one can follow all night.

China's Spring Festival also has many customs, very difficult one time to explain.In brief the East and the West have some differences, but has point is common, is the holiday takes to people's happiness.

Expresses best wishes and sent regards.flees
