Section 3 Text
Spring Festival The Spring Festival
is the most important celebration for Chinese
people. Although the meaning and the methods of
celebration of the Spring Festival are changing
with the time, the important status of the Spring
Festival is incomparable1. According to
the traditional custom, the Spring Festival lasts
from the 23rd day of 12th lunar month to the 15th
day of 1st lunar month, and the climax should be
the New Year Eve and the first day of first lunar
month2.
27
People carry out a lot of activities all
over the country to welcome the Spring Festival.
In the countryside, all the families clean their
houses, wash their clothes and bed sheets. Fresh
new clothes and sheets commemorate the fresh New
Year! Special New Year purchases are also
important parts of upcoming New Year. In the
city, they celebrate the New Year with art teams
performances, various entertainment parties, and
the big parks hold "temple fairs" to provide,
recreation, food and art3!.
28
Mid-Autumn Festival The Mid-Autumn
Festival is on the 15th day of the 8th month. It
is an evening celebration when families gather
together to light lanterns4, eat moon cakes and
appreciate the round moon. On that night, the
moon appears to be at its roundest and brightest.
The full moon is a symbol for family reunion,
which is why that day is also known as the
Festival of Reunion. In mid-autumn, farmers
have just finished gathering their crops and
bringing in fruits in the orchards5. They are
overwhelmed with joy6 when they have a bumper
harvest and at the same time, they feel quite
relaxed after a year of hard work. So the 15th
day of the eighth lunar month (the Mid-Autumn
Festival) has gradually evolved as a widely
celebrated festival for ordinary people.

boats. The festival is best known for its
