Chinese Festivals and Holidays
   2015-09-30 15:23:39    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Liu Ranran

 

Gathering under the stars, eating mooncakes with salted egg yolk centres, and casting lanterns into the sky make China¡¯s moon festival magic.

The lunar new year and dragon boat races in honor of a poet falsely accused of treason are also popular Chinese holidays. China has even put its own spin on western holidays, with giant Christmas trees and couples exchanging gifts on Valentine's Day.

Oh, and there¡¯s also a Chinese version in case the guys forget first time around! And Chinese entrepreneur Jack Ma took the newly invented November 11th single's holiday and turned it into the world's biggest shopping extravaganza, with 9.3 billion dollars in online shopping transactions in 24 hours in 2014.
