Chinese New Year 過新年

Chinese New Year is the big event of the Chinese year (around end of January───early February in the western calendar). It is a time when families, no matter how far away they live, come together to eat and talk. Traditionally, the mother and daughters will prepare special foods such as sticky cakes and rice and special dumplings. There are many unusual beliefs about Chinese New Year.

Although there is special food, some people do not eat meat on New Year Day. This is to bring them long and happy lives. The second day of the New Year, they are kind to dogs because this is considered the birthday of the dogs. On other days they will visit other relatives, give respect to parents-in-law and welcome the God of Wealth. Because farming used to be so important, farmers also have some special celebrations and make traditional drinks. From the 10th to the 12th days relatives are invited for dinner.

The house is specially decorated with flowers and short poems written on red paper. As we have seen above, red is considered lucky and white is the color of death. Therefore red is emphasized and white discouraged at this time. Children and elderly people are given money in red envelopes. The floor is not swept in case good fortune is swept out the door too. Firecrackers are set off and traditional folk activities such as lion dancing are enjoyed in the streets.

Today, perhaps not many people believe in the old ideas about good and bad fortune etc. However, they often like to follow the old traditions in the same way as Western people do.

中國新年是中國農曆上的大節日(約是陽曆一月底、二月初左右)。新年是全家一起吃飯聊天的日子,不管大家住得多遠,都會回來跟家人團聚。傳統上母親和女兒會在新年期間準備各種特別的食物,像是年糕、糯米和特製的餃子。關於中國新年,中國人有很多特別的信仰。

雖然過年期間有很多特別食物,有些人在大年初一這天卻不吃肉,因為這樣可以讓他們快樂長壽。初二這天人們會對狗特別好,因為他們認為這天是狗的生日。其他 天他們會去拜訪親戚、公婆和岳父母,並迎接財神。由於過去農業非常重要,因此農民也有一些特別的慶祝方式,並會製作傳統的飲料。從初十到十二,大家會請親 戚來家裡吃晚飯。

過年期間家家戶戶都會用鮮花和春聯裝飾一番。我們在之前也提過,紅色代表吉祥,白色代表死亡,因此這段期間什麼都是紅色的,白色則盡量不用。兒童和長輩會 收到紅包。過年期間也不掃地,以免把福氣掃出了門。大家會放鞭炮,街上也可以看到舞獅等傳統慶祝活動。

今天可能沒有那麼多人信這些吉利不吉利的舊觀念了。不過大家多半還是會遵循傳統,就跟西方人一樣。
