Overview of festivals and celebrations in China
Traveling during local holidays is a unique opportunity to discover the country's culture and traditions from the inside. The most famous national holiday is Chinese New Year symbolizing the coming of spring. In late January - early February, the country plunges into a festive atmosphere: everywhere there are active preparations, brightly decorated buildings and dwellings, New Year's sales. Many state institutions do not work on these days. The main Chinese tradition for this day is gathering at a big table as a family, cooking traditional and sweet rice dumplings. On the New Year's morning, it is customary to present children red envelopes with money inside.
