The Chinese New Year

chinese-new-year-001     The Chinese new year, we also call it Spring Festival.

中国新年,我们也称为春节。

Why we call it Spring Festival, because according to the Chinese lunar calendar ,the Chinese New Year lies between late January and early February.At that time it’s spring already.

为什么我们称为春节是因为根据中国阴历,中国新年一般处在一月末到二月初,届时已经是春天了。

This lesson, we will talking about something about the Spring Festival.You know the new year has gone here, but Chinese new year hasn’t arrived yet.It’s will be on the 28th January.It’s the first day of lunar calendar and last 15 days.Just like the Christmas Day here,the Spring Festival is the biggest celebration in China.

这节课,我们将要和学生讨论中国新年。你知道西方新年已经过去了,但是中国新年还没有来。它将是在一月28号。它是阴历新年的第一天,将会持续15天。正像这儿的圣诞节一样,春节是中国最大的庆祝。

When the Spring Festival approaches ,people will be very busy with preparing something.Sweeping the house, pasting some Spring Festival scrolls in the doorways to create jubilant festive atmosphere since the phrases written on it means good luck and prosperity.

当春节来临时,人们将会非常繁忙地准备。打扫屋子,在门上贴春联去创造喜洋洋的节日氛围。贴在上面的话语意味着好运和繁荣。

We printed some Fu character for kids to color.The best the background is red, which means good luck and the Fu character can be yellow or black.

我们打印了一些福字,供孩子们去涂色。背景最好时红色的,这意味着好运,至于字可以是黄色或黑色的。
