New Year is my favorite Chinese National Holiday. New Year means a lot to me. I can do a lot of things during New Year, because the holiday is long. I can play with fire and get a lot of money, because during New Year’s I can play with fireworks. What New Year means to me the most is I have someone to play with, since every New Year my cousin visits.
Unlike other Chinese National Holidays, where the holiday lasts only a week or less; New Year’s lasts close to one month, and in one month I can do a lot of interesting things. During other holidays I can’t really do any thing at all.
Every year when New Year comes, my dad, if he has time, takes me to the fireworks shop. And he buys a lot of fireworks for me to play with, so every night I can play with firework till late into the night. Also during the New Year it is a traditional that friends and family give each other a red bag called Hong Bao, and in each of those bags there is money. At the end of New Year, I always open all of the bags at the same time to see how much money I got.
New Year means I get someone to play with so I am not alone. Every New Year’s my cousin comes to visit me and lives in our home for the whole vacation until his school begins again. When my cousin comes, everyday, after finishing work, we always play basketball, computer games, badminton and more. So I’m never bored at all.
So this is what New Year’s means to me. However, the most important thing about New Year’s is that my cousin comes to meet me. He comes every year, and every time he comes he brings me something new.
