On the New Year’s Day and the few days to follow, people often visit their relatives and friends to give one another their best wishes for the new year. Throughout this festival period firecrackers can be heard everywhere. This festival is the most important festival for the Chinese.

Waking up on New Year， everybody dresses up。 First they extend greetings to their parents。 Then each child will get money as a New Year gift， wrapped up in red paper。 People in northern China will eat jiaozi， or dumplings， for breakfast， as they think "jiaozi" in sound means "bidding farewell to the old and ushering in the new"。 Also， the shape of the dumpling is like gold ingot from ancient China。 So people eat them and wish for money and treasure。
