As a Chinese learner, you must be curious how Chinese spend the Spring Festival.


正月初一:拜年
January 1st (lunar calendar) : Paying a New Year's Visit

除夕过后就是正月初一,人们都会外出拜年。这一天人们忙得不亦乐乎,彼此表达美好祝愿。据说,正月初一这天人们不能扔东西,这样他们就可以把财富留在自己的家里,来年就会福星高照、幸福满满。

Following the New Year's Eve is the first day of Spring Festival, a day for paying a New Year's visit. During this day, people will be busy in giving best wishes to others. It is said that people should not dump anything on the first day of the new year, so that they will lead a happy life.



正月初二:已婚妇女会回娘家
Second Day: Married Women Visiting Birth Parents

人们常说在祭祀之后,财神爷于正月初二要回天上。为了向神表达敬意,人们这天要吃馄饨,这是一种形状类似银锭的食物。传统上,已婚妇女要回娘家,拜见亲生父母。

People say that after offering sacrifices, TsaiShen, the God of Wealth, leaves for heaven on the 2nd day of the lunar New Year. In honour of the deity, people will eat wonton, resembling the shape of an ingot. Traditionally, married women will visit their birth parents.


正月初三:忌讳登门拜年
Third Day: No-No for Going House-Visit

为了表示敬意,在过去三年里,家里有至亲过世的人是不能登门拜访别人的。人们在正月初三这天会去扫墓。

Families who had an immediate relative deceased in the past 3 years will not go house-visit as a form of respect to the dead. The 3rd day of the New Year is allocated to grave-visit instead.


正月初五:拜见财神
Fifth Day: Welcoming the God of Wealth

人们认为这天是财神爷的生日,所以在初五这天早晨要放鞭炮,迎接财神的到来。在这一天,商家又开始营业。

The day is regarded as the birthday of the God of Wealth and respect is paid to the god. In the morning, firecrackers are exploded as a sign of welcome the God of Wealth. All businesses will be reopened on this day.
