Several days before the new year, people begin to prepare. Farmers kill pigs, sheep, cocks and hens. City dwellers buy meat fish and vegetables. Houses are cleaned; coupletsare posted on the doors. Colourful lanterns are hung at the gate. On the eve of the new year, each family has its members gatherd together and eats a family reunion dinner. After the meal they watch TV until the clock strickes twelve. Then every family sets off long strings of small firecrackers and other fire works to welcome the new year. On the first day of the new year, almost everyone is dressed in his or her best. When people meet on the way, they say to each other "Happy New Year".

Friends and relatives pay new year calls and gives presents to each other. Children indulge themselves in games.

Spring Festival

My best festival is Spring Festival. It is in Janurary or February. It is the most important festival for the Chinese people. On that day 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, the shape of the dumpling is like gold ingot from ancient China. So people eat them and wish for money and treasure. Burning fireworks was once the most typical custom on the Spring Festival. I like spring festival very much. It's my favourite holiday.

Dear distinguished chief judge;

As the defense attorney of my client, I have made many surveys in secret after I took over the case. According to my client and all the information I have inspected about the case, now I have an deep and comprehensive understanding about the case . Therefore , I want to show my opinions to you, and I hope the chief would accept them .

. 1. The stolen car was found abandoned three hours after the theft with the engine still warm; at the time the car was found, my client was at the airport to meet the flight of a friend who was flying into town.

2. Lab analysis of muddy shoe prints on the floor mat of the car indicates that the prints came from a size 27 shoe; your client wears a size 25.

3. Lab analysis shows the presence of cigarette smoke in the car, but your client does not smoke.

4. The only eyewitness to the crime, who was 20 meters from the car, said the thief "looked like" your client; yet the eyewitness admitted that at the time of the theft she was not wearing her contact lenses, which had been prescribed for improving distance vision.

5. The car was stolen at about I p.m.; your client testified that he was in a town 400 kilometers away at 11 a.m.

6. In a statement to police, the eyewitness described the thief as tall; your client is short.

Because of all the doubtful points , I think it is unfair to found guilty of theft to my client. Moreover, the basic standard of criminal sanction is that taking facts as a basis and laws as the criterion, so I hope the chief judge will give a reasonable judgment to my client finally.

That’s all ,thanks.

“Laba Festival” falls on the eighth day of the twelfth month in lunar calendar. On that day, the majority Chinese have long followed the tradition of eating Laba rice porridge. Usually, the rice porridge tastes sweet, with nuts and dried fruit, but different families have different ingredients in the porridge. My family usually make porridge with small red beans,fragrant rice,walnut,peanut and millet.

Laba Festival also marks the beginning of preparing for spring festival. Some families begin to do spring festival shopping and clean their houses after that day.




Kitchen God's Day

Kitchen God’s Day falls on the 23rd or 24th of the twelfth month of the lunar year. According to tradition, Kitchen God who in charge of the fate of the whole family goes back to heaven during the spring festival to deliver what the family had done the last year to the Great God. According to Kitchen God’s words, the Great God makes decision to reward or punish the family in the next year. In other words, it is the day people honor the Kitchen God.

People usually made sugared melons with malt sugar on that day. We hope Kitchen God will eat sugared melons and put a good word for our family to the Great God, so we’ll be lucky next year.

The Spring Festival

The spring festival is the most important festival for Chinese. At Chinese New Year’s Eve, family members have reunion dinner together. This dinner would be the best dinner, not only because we have various dishes, but it’s the day we could meet all our family members.

After family reunion dinner, we make Chinese dumplings together, and usually watch the Spring Festival Gala on CCTV. Each family would light firecrackers and paste up Spring Festival couplets. One more thing is important, that is people should stay up late or all night on New Year's Eve to welcome the new year.

Traditionally, on that day, Chinese family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn moon, and eat moon cakes and pomegranate together. Typical mooncakes are round or rectangular pastries. Most mooncakes consist of a thin tender skin enveloping a sweet, dense filling

My explanations of interesting questions:

1、Why do Chinese have Spring Festival? Where did it come from?

In Chinese mythology, the monster Nian is a beast that lives in the mountains. Every 365 days, it comes out of hiding to attack people, especially children. That day is the critical day for people. But Nian is sensitive to loud noises and is afraid of the color red. People came up with a plan to drive the monster away. On the day Nian came out, people shut doors and stay at home. They made loud noises and light firecrackers to scare away Nian.



2. Why should Chinese do house cleaning before Spring Festival?

The 24th day on the last lunar month is the day for cleanup. Everyone should have a

spring-cleaning, do home cleaning, sweep their home, clean windows, wash clothes and

clean dishes, so that keep dust away. In Chinese, the word “dust” has the same pronunciation with “old”. So to sweep dust is a metaphor of sweeping away the old and starting afresh.



3. Why do people wear new clothes on Spring Festival?

People wear new clothes in spring festival to make a good impression on others. New cloth is also the symbol of welcoming the New Year, hoping that everything is new and auspicious. 为什么要穿新衣?


4. Why do Chinese set off firecracker on Spring Festival?

In legend, people set off firecracker to scare the monster “Nian” away. Nowadays, we set off firecrackers to bid a farewell to old days and celebrate the start of the New Year.



5. Why do Chinese Paste Spring Couplets?

Spring couplet is a kind of typical Chinese literature, expressing best wishes with brief, periodic and heroic couplets.



6. Why do Chinese hang red lanterns?

Red, in China always is to represent the good luck and auspiciousness. Red lantern is the symbol of happiness, peace and warmth,



7. Why do Chinese make and eat Chinese dumpling?

In Chinese, the word of Chinese dumplings has the same pronunciation with the word which means the moment between the old and New Year. Chinese dumplings/Jiaozi means replacement of the old year by the New Year. Moreover, the shape of Chinese dumpling is like shoe-shaped gold ingot, which symbolizes the life rich and good luck.
