It's hard to believe it's that time of year again.  Been here 11 years and live in Handan.  Certainly has changed from when I first arrived... past couple of years seems like just going through the obligatory motions.

I notice that Chinese more and more often make holiday trips during the Spring Festibal: to Hainan, Hong Kong, or to Thailand. The Thai tourism authorities report they are expecting 300'000 Chinese visitors this month.

When I was young, I looked forward to the annual Spring Festival because it means new clothes, bet ...

I have that similar feeling too. My most precious memories of Spring Festival is not new clothes or food (although I look forward to that) but fireworks. I like to throw them at cockroaches and see them scurrying around after the explosion. In future, maybe, all these may be replicated by mobile games.

The Chinese New Year always remain unchanged, if you do not believe it, take a look at the huge crowd in train stations across the country.
Yea, you are right, Chinese New Year means always on the way, to home or to workplace, with little fun but more chores.
