《My Spring Festival》
The Spring Festival is the most important festival for the Chinese people and is a day when Chinese people get together for sharing happiness.
The Spring Festival falls on the 1st day of the 1st lunar month,often one month later than the Gregorian calendar.At Spring Festival Eve,all the family members eat dinner together.After the dinner,the whole family will sit together,chatting and watching TV.In the past,we often just watch the Spring Festival party broadcasted on China Central Television Station(CCTV).But nowadays,less and less people watch it but play cards or mahjong.
Burning fireworks was once the most typical custom on the Spring Festival.People thought the spluttering sound could help drive away evil spirits.However,such an activity was completely or partially forbidden in big cities once the government took security,noise and pollution factors into consideration.

I went to QingDao,my hometown,for my winter holiday,and spent my Spring Festival there.It was really a nosy festival.
In ji’nan,we have not been allowed to set off fireworks for many years.But in Yantai,as it was the first Spring Festival of the 21st century,people were allowed to do it this time.
Many small shops began to sell fireworks and I felt as if I were back in my childhood when we were free to enjoy ourselves by setting off fireworks.A great many children bought many fireworks and the sellers must have made a lot of money.
Naughty children were so excited that they couldn’t help setting them off even before the festival ahd arrived.I was also eager to see what would happen on Spring Festival Eve.
Soon it came and loud sounds of explosions could be heard

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.
