My Favourite Day - Chinese New Year
This is my favorite time of year. The Chinese New Year festival lasts for 15 days. At midnight on New Year’s Eve, every door and window in the house is opened to let the old year leave.
On the last day we have the Lantern Festival. We carry lanterns in a parade at night. I like to watch the Lion Dance. Two people dance under the bright costume.
This brings good luck.That’s my dad at the back.
People wear bright, red clothes to bring a happy future. We take oranges and tangerines if we visit someone’s home. This is lucky too.
Children and relatives are given little red envelopes with ‘lucky money’ inside.
