Watch about Chinese New Year History
¢Chinese New Year is a time when families get together to celebrate. It is also a special time to remember members of the family who have died.
¢In the days coming up to New Year every family buys presents, decorations, food, new clothes and people have their hair cut.
¢Houses are cleaned from top to bottom. The aim is to sweep out any bad luck from the old year and clear the way for good luck. However, it is bad luck to clean on New Years Day itself.
¢Families put lights up outside their homes, rather like Christmas lights.
¢Doors and windows are often newly painted in red.
¢On New Years Eve both narrow strips of red paper, called Chunlian or Spring Couplets, and bunches of firecracker decorations are hung on doors to bring good luck.
