Traditional Chinese Festivals for Kids
Traditional Chinese Festivals are the life-blood of Chinese life and culture. It seems there is always some kind of celebration to look forward to! Chinese celebrations are all rich in tradition, history, great food, dazzling lights and flashy decorations!
Chinese festivals are based in the lunar calendar so the exact dates will vary from year to year in our Western Calendar.
By far, the largest and most important festival is the Spring Festival when Chinese New Year is celebrated. But there are also many others just as lively and colorful that all Chinese kids love and enjoy:
Needless to say, travel during the major public holidays, specially the "Golden Weeks" of the Spring Festival and National Day in October, is a bit more challenging as facilities and transportation will be flooded by local tourists.
Here's more ways people are celebrating colorful Chinese Festivals all over the world, share how you celebrate too!
