Chinese New Year – Jiya Patel

Hi! My name is Jiya Patel and I am 10 years old and I love puppies. I also love to bake and want to be a baker when I grow up and adopt a puppy. My favorite festival is Holi which is an Indian festival of colors. During Holi we play with colors and we dance a lot. I love to get messy with the colors. The first time I ever celebrated Holi was when I was 1 year old, but I have not played in years until recently this year

 


 

The Chinese New Year (CNY) is also known as the Spring Festival in China. In 2017, CNY was celebrated on January 28, 2017. It is the most important festival or holiday in china of the whole year. On the CNY the most important part is the family reunion. A lot of Chinese people prepare for the New Year by going shopping, visiting relatives, and doing fireworks. This is a lot like the Indian Festival called Diwali. During Diwali me and my family gets together with relatives and do many similar things like shopping for new clothes and doing fireworks all night long followed by a big Indian dinner. I would love to celebrate the CNY, if I could as I would most enjoy going shopping and fireworks. My brother who is 4 years old is very scared of fireworks, and runs inside the house when we do fireworks as it gets very loud.
