Transcript: When it Occurs The Chinese New Year goes by the Lunar Calendar and it changes every year. 2009 is the year of the ox. It's said that people born in the year of the ox are dependable, trustworthy, and become painters, engineers, and architechs. Wearing a black dress during The Chinese New Year is said to be bad luck. You are supposed to wear red clothing. Chinese New Year The Chinese New Year is celebrated in countries and territories with signifigant Chinese populations, such as China, including Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Phillippines, Mauritius, Vietnam, and also in Chinatowns elsewhere. Not only is the choice of the gift important in Chinese culture, but how much you spend on it, how you wrap it, and how you present it are equally important. They give gifts to show their appreciation to eachother. There really is no specific gift giver. Foods, Songs, Music, Dances, and Parades The centuries-old legend on the origins of the New Year celebration varies from teller to teller. But they all include a story of a terrible mythical monster who preyed on villigers. The lion-like monsters name was Nian which is also the Chinese word for "year." Mandarin oranges, nian gao, dumplings, whole carp, hair seaweed with dried oysters, lotus roots, roast, and duck or chicken are some foods they eat during the festivals. Some songs they sing are Yao Li, Wu Ying-yin, Zhang Fan, Grace Chang, White Light, and Sam Hui. They visit parades and large banquets with dancing to celebrate the New Year. Where It's Celebrated Traditions The New Year begins at sunset on the day of the 2nd new moon following the winter solstice (between January 21st and February 19th). The Origin of the Festival Before the New Year arrives, the Chinese consider it very important to give their house a thorough cleaning, sweeping away any bad luck. The Chinese visit parades and festivals with dancers, dragons, and food. Later they would eat a large banquet. Yuan Tan Nian How is it Celebrated Chinese New Year Fun Facts

Transcript: Traditional Food What is Lunar new year? A reunion dinner, named as "Nian Ye Fan", is held on New Year's Eve during which family members gather for celebration. The venue will usually be in or near the home of the most senior member of the family. The New Year's Eve dinner is very large and sumptuous and traditionally includes dishes of meat (namely, pork and chicken) and fish. Most reunion dinners also feature a communal hot pot as it is believed to signify the coming together of the family members for the meal. Most reunion dinners (particularly in the Southern regions) also prominently feature specialty meats and seafood that are usually reserved for this and other special occasions during the remainder of the year. In most areas, fish ( pinyin: yú) is included, but not eaten completely (and the remainder is stored overnight), as the Chinese phrase "may there be surpluses every year" (pinyin: nián nián you yú) sounds the same as "let there be fish every year." Eight individual dishes are served to reflect the belief of good fortune associated with the number. If in the previous year a death was experienced in the family, seven dishes are served. Chinese New Year, also known as the "Lunar New Year" or "Spring Festival" (Pinyin: Chūn Jié) in modern Mainland China, is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. It is one of the world's most prominent and celebrated festivals, with the "largest annual mass human migration in the world". Red Packets Traditionally, red envelopes or red packets are passed out during the Chinese New Year's celebrations, from married couples or the elderly to unmarried juniors. It is also common for adults or young couples to give red packets to children.Red packets almost always contain money, usually varying from a couple of dollars to several hundred. Per custom, the amount of money in the red packets should be of even numbers, as odd numbers are associated with cash given during funerals.Sometimes chocolate coins are found in the red packets. lunar new year - rooster

Transcript: Chinese new year Nien was a mythical beast that used to come and terrorize China the first day of every new year. To protect themselves, villagers would leave food outside their doors every year. It was until they found out that Nien feared the color red that they began to fight back. They hung the color red everywhere and set off firecrackers and successfully scared away the beast.
