chinese lunar year is definitely important, more important than any other festivals for our chinese people, especially for generation of our parents. christmas is just a holiday in fashion, but not our festival, we just take it for a chance to relax and happy.

real problem that we have in china,especially in some big and fashional cities.when i was a child,i was a fanatic of lunar year.i could receive lots of gifts and my mom bought new clothes to me. but now,with my grew up,no one around me focuses on the spring festival. i think xmas or lunar year,or other festivals we have to know what the festival's meaning is,for some western people,they just have fun like go to bar or have a dancing party when christmas comes,so nomatter who i am,where we live in and how old we are,we must remember that the real meaning of the festival is.

dear kevin,every nation should preserve their national cultural occasions and celebrate is to value them and convey them to the next generation to make them alive as they are part of the real identity of each nation.we should not blindly follow every non traditional occasions and substitude them with our rich culture.

of course chinese new year!  it has the history of more than 5thousand years, I think it has infiltrated our bloods; Although christmas is gettling popular in china gradually nowadays, the reason is mostly because of the links with outside is broad and then the merchants want to get the benefits and make money from it. but still, new year is  our chinese symbol. now the festival is getting close, I miss home :)

Spring festival  runs deep in Chinese consciousness.celebrating Christmas is a junior fashion that is taken up with great enthusiasm for a brief period of time. it is  a  stratagem of commerce.
