All the other days leftI didn't go anywhere, no only becasue I still have some homework,but also there were almost all crowded in everywhere!
Different countries have different customs and different ways to celebrate festival. In our China, we have a variety of festivals, of which celebrating way is different. For example, we will eat mooncake in Mid-autumn Festival and have dragon boat races in the Dragon Boat Festival and eat zongzi. But in some extend, we celebrate all the festivals in the same way. Every family will have a big meal with their family. It is a time for family gathering. No matter what kind of celebrating way for a festival, it is the time to enjoy life.
How time flies! Four moths have passed since we saw each other last time. I cannot helpbut miss you. You asked me about Chinese Spring Festival. Now I would like to tell yousomething about it.The Spring Festival is a Chinese traditional festival. It is the most important and enjoyable one. A few days before the festival, houses are cleaned and red couplets are put up on the doors of every household. They are said to frighten away the ghosts. On that day, people are dressed up. Firecrackers ring out in the air, which adds to the atmosphere of the festival. People after a year’s hard work begin to relax and visit one another. Presents and dinners are given to celebrate the happy reunion of friends and relatives. Families get together. They have jiaozi and enjoy the New Year TV show. Customs may vary from place to place, but the same happy atmosphere is to be found everywhere in the country.
Now, I hope you have some idea of Chinese Spring Festival.
Today is Christmas Day. It’s a western holiday, but it’s popular in our country, too. Today, our English teacher buys chocolates to us. They are very sweet. And then, she teaches us a song, Jingle Bell. It’s a lovely song and easy to sing. We learn it quickly. At night, my mother cooks some delicious western food. I love this Christmas Day.
Now people in growing numbers are beginning to realize that they prefer enjoying western festivals,such as the coming X'mas.There is a general discussion today about this issue.Certainly,this is a delicious sign of persity in the life. A lot of reasons are responsible for it.To begin with,the young men are exposed to the international minds or trends,and they are partly influenced.What's more,the western views have been spread widely,naturally,and culturally.Moreover,nowadays people have their rights to have a taste of various cultures.In other words,they may celebrate festivals they like besides the conventional days,like the Spring Festival. Obviously,this does some effects in our life.For example,it will arouse anxiety among so-called protectors of tradition.They unnecessarily worries that the western days are to replace the Chinese convention.Personally speaking,the policy of “let it be” will do more good that harm in this field.However,it is necessary that effective actions should be taken to prevent the negative effects of both traditional and western days.
If I am able to create a holiday, it would be the "Food and Fun Day". Think about it, with all the school homework and exams; it would be really nice to take a break from all the studies and just relax. Also I think everyone would enjoy the great food and lots of fun. It's just like a big party where everyone is invited. I would like the "Food and Fun Day" be set during the middle of the school year, where everyone can relax from their studies for a day. On that day, everyone will bring food and drinks to school and share what they brought with friends, students, and teachers. There will also be games and winners gets great prizes. Think about it, how great it would be to have a holiday like that!
