Far and away the most important holiday in China is Spring Festival, also known as the Chinese New Year. To the Chinese people it is as important as Christmas to people in the West. the dates for this annual celebration are determined by the lunar calendar rather than the GREgorian calendar, so the timing of the holiday varies from late January to early February.
To the ordinary Chinese, the festival actually begins on the eve of the lunar New Year's Day and ends on the fifth day of the first month of the lunar calendar. But the 15th of the first month, which normally is called the Lantern Festival, means the official end of the Spring Festival in many parts of the country.

To tell you the truth，I don t like the Spring Fetival at all. When I was young I liked it very much，because I could had something tasty to eat during the Spring Festival，and I could enjoy very wonderful TV progrmmes，too，I also could had much free time during which I could did something I liked to do. I don t like it now， there are many reasons.
Firstly，I can t have a good time during the Festival. Every New Year s Eve something unpleasant often happens. Once I quarreled with my second brother.
Secondly，I can t relax myself during the Festival. I have to do many things，watch so many TV programmes， meet so many people，all these things make me very tired.
Thirdly，spending one Spring Festival means that I become one year older，I don t like to be old. I want to live longer and be young all the time. Readers， what is your opinions about the Spring Festival?Please tell us，we can share our opinions. Thanks for reading! Goodbye.
