Lunar New Year

In China and in ethnic communities around the world, the lunar new year is the most important and most festive holiday of the year. Through thousands of years of tradition, this was the one period when farmers could rest from their work in the fields. Family members would travel to be with loved ones in time to usher out the old year and welcome in the new, with great celebratory flourish.Today, the country is packed with holiday travelers; festive foods; and streets are filled with the sounds of firecrackers and seasonal greetings.
