Chinese New Year is the MOST important festival in China which is accompanied by dragon dances, Dumpling/Jiaozi Making, CCTV Gala, decorative paper-cutting, fireworks and more. Each region, province or family has its own traditions and beliefs around how the Lunar new year should be celebrated. Great food, temple visit, Lantern Festival visit and family visit are what many Chinese people do during the golden week in January or February.
