Chinese New Year 2021


Kelly Zhou

On February 12th, 2021 is the year of OX. We usually celebrate it on the night before the new year. We eat dumplings together and set off fireworks. We have a old history story with the tradition. The story goes: There was a monster called “Nian”and he like to eat kids during the new year time, but he was scared about red color. To protect the children the parents or grandparents gave children the red pocket with some money inside for the kids to put it under their pillow. When the monster came he would get scared and run away. On the New Year day  visit our friends and family members and spend time with them. It is one of the biggest festivals celebrated in China.
