Celebrate the Spring Festival with traditional Chinese customs.

1  Post the spring festival couplets on the both sides of the doors.



2  Before having the Spring Festival dinner,we are bound to burn incense sticks,light a pair of candles and offer sacrifices to pay respects to our ancesters.



3  It is likewise a time for remembering loved ones who have departed.

Vist their tombs, sweep away the dust and dirt around, burn incense sticks and paper money,light a pair of candles, offer sacrifices and then bow before the memorial tablet to pay our respects.
