Only in festivals could they have a big meal. The Spring
Festival is the most important festival in China to celebrate
the arrival of lunar new year. It is the time for the reunion
of the family members. In the evening before the Spring
Festival, dressed up in beautiful new clothes, families get
together and have a big meal. It is the custom of the adults

because they can have delicious food, wear new clothes and
have fun with each other. Most importantly, they can get
some lucky money from their parents and relatives.
