The morning of the Spring Festival, I jumped out of bed first, actively spirit, active exercise, then happily to call mom and dad, dad to see me get up so early, also not to be outdone, up and then got up from the bed, mom also have to get up, after washing a face to brush teeth, a heart think of is to eat a ball! The thought of eating, I always turns, busy parents to suggest what to do, my mother is my home chef, so the referee to decide what to do by her, the mother said: "for a long time have not eaten dumplings, eat some dumplings." We all agree.
After deciding what to do, we split the labor, dad made the meat, the mother knead, I boiled water. We all worked very hard, and within half an hour, the meat was ready, the dumplings were ready, and the water was boiling away. My mother expertly wrapped up the dumpling, my sister and I also learn to wrap up, I am not easy to wrap three, exhausted, still hard to learn! "My mother said," I'm born to do it. I don't want to eat bitterness. I was a little ashamed of myself, and I learned my lesson, and I redrew my sails, and I made a little faster. This makes me understand that everything should work hard.
After about twenty minutes, the kneading dough has been made into dumplings, and my sister and I have been pouring water into the pan. Mother then put the dumplings into the pot and cooked them. My mother added some seasoning to make the dumplings more delicious. After more than ten minutes, my mother scooped up the dumplings and divided them into four bowls and put some soup in each bowl. My mother just got the soup, I grabbed a bowl and had a good time! The tongue was hot because of eating too fast.
We all had our mouths full of oil, and we were delighted to watch the wonderful TV program.
Ah, what a happy Spring Festival!
After the Preliminary Eve, people begin preparing for the coming New Year. This is called "Seeing the New Year in".
Store owners are busy then as everybody goes out to purchase necessities for the New Year. Materials not only include edible oil, rice, flour, chicken, duck, fish and meat, but also fruit, candies and kinds of nuts. What's more, various decorations, new clothes and shoes for the children as well as gifts for the elderly, friends and relatives, are all on the list of purchasing.
Before the New Year comes, the people completely clean the indoors and outdoors of their homes as well as their clothes, bedclothes and all their utensils.
Then people begin decorating their clean rooms featuring an atmosphere of rejoicing and festivity. All the door panels will be pasted with Spring Festival couplets, highlighting Chinese calligraphy with black characters on red paper. The content varies from house owners' wishes for a bright future to good luck for the New Year. Also, pictures of the god of doors and wealth will be posted on front doors to ward off evil spirits and welcome peace and abundance.
It's about one and a half month away from the Chinese New Year, It is a festival celebrated by the Chinese people at the beginning of the lunar calendar year.
As of the Chinese traditional customs, our parents and grandparents will sweep every corner of the house and clean the windows until they gleam, and washing clothes, buying foods and goods for the new year's future use and presents.
Children will be the most benefited group during this feast period. One month before that, they are expecting the new clothes, delicious foods. The firecrackers and the year's allowance for their increased ages.
In recent years, with the rising of the standard of life, Chinese tend to make various holiday plans to spend a different and meaningful new year. Such as traveling abroad, or be absorbed in their hobbies, and even work.
Why today we try to spend our Chinese new year in such a different way? I think that's because this is a era of free life and personality high-ranking. Though there are still something traditional, our young generation is attempting to make something new and suitable for ourselves. And we would like to take something really worth to be cherished in our memorable treasures. That's amazing and wonderful!
I'll always keep in mind that the Chinese new year is a great feast inherited from our ancestors, but if necessary, I would like to enjoy it by some ways personal.
