How are you? I’m really glad that you are interested in traditional Chinese festivals. There are many traditional festivals in China, such as Spring Festival, Mid-Autumn Day and so on. I’d like to introduce the Spring Festival to you.
Spring Festival is the most important traditional holiday in China. It usually lasts for 15 days.Days before the festival, people clean their houses. They think cleaning sweeps any bad luck. They decorate their houses with paper cuts. On the eve of the festival, family members get together and have big meals. Then they watch the Spring Festival Gala on TV. At midnight, they set off fireworks to welcome the New Year. During the festival, kids get lucky money from old people. People visit their relatives and friends. They wish one another a happy year and good luck. How happy we are.

I’m glad to hear from you. It’s true that Chinese customs are different from yours in America. Let me give you some suggestions about Chinese customs.
When you meet others for the first time,you are supposed to shake hands instead of kissing. It’s polite to hand out your right hand and shake it with another person’s right hand. When you are eating at the table, you should let the old start first. When you are eating with your chopsticks, it’s impolite to point at other people with your chopsticks. It’s also impolite to stick your chopsticks into the bowl of rice and leave them there.
When you go out with people, you are supposed to tell the hostess where you are going, who you are going with and when you will come back. In our culture, the hostess will worry about the safety of her guests, so it’s polite to let her know these things.
Have a safe trip and I look forward to meeting you soon!
Protect Traditional Chinese Culture
The protection of national and folk culture is of great significance to Chinese cultural diversity and also to the harmonious development between local economic and social development. It is reported that the Guangdong government pays special attention to protecting Chaoju(潮剧)， a local drama born in Chaozhou in the eastern Guangdong province.
In my opinion, some measures should be taken to protect traditional culture effectively. To start with, we should make a law to regulate the society’s performance. Besides, we should draw more people’s attention to it, for the more they know about the importance of culture protection, the stronger support we can get from the public.
In a word, it is high time for us to treasure and develop our own valuable culture.
