The Spring Festival

By Li Song

'The Spring Festival' is the most important day for Chinese people. It truly creates a carnival for unification of family members and for celebration at the end of a year. This book introduces the origin, development, and traditions of 'The Spring Festival,' and it offers readers a panoramic view of this unique Chinese festival. The book - written as an English-Chinese bilingual text - tells the stories behind the festival's name and covers nearly every aspect of the festival. The influence of the festival on ethnic minorities of China and overseas Chinese diasporas is also included.
