'she pretended to be angry. But I don't believe she's really angry. She's got a smile on her face.
Goodbye to my aunt and sister, we set out on the train to our hometown. My maternal grandmother has another aunt in loudi, so we are going to go to loudi! It took two and a half hours to get to loudi railway station. My grandfather was the train station, and I took two steps to go home. As soon as he entered the door, grandpa came to meet him. "Grandpa," gong said, "get rich. Get it in red packets!" Grandpa laughed from ear to ear, hurriedly gave me a red envelope, I opened a look, hi, again have 200 yuan!

After dinner, we came to our great aunt's house. My brother was waiting downstairs, and he was setting off firecrackers! Seeing my brother is the happiest thing for me, because he can always come up with a lot of funny ideas. He can't wait to drag me to his house to play the racing game, so exciting!
Time flies so fast that it's almost dark. My aunt's cooking is the best in our family, so be sure to stay and taste the big dinner she has prepared for us! Faced with a table of delicious food, a large family gathered around the table, everyone with a happy smile on their faces, I really felt "life is sweeter than honey"!
I can't help looking forward to next year's New Year!
The Spring Festival is the most important festival for the Chinese people and is when all family members get together, just like Christmas in the West. All people living away from home go back, becoming the busiest time for transportation systems of about half a month from the Spring Festival. Airports, railway stations and long-distance bus stations are crowded with home returnees.
The Spring Festival falls on the 1st day of the 1st lunar month, often one month later than the Gregorian calendar. It originated in the Shang Dynasty from the people s sacrifice to gods and ancestors at the end of an old year and the beginning of a new one.
Strictly speaking, the Spring Festival starts every year in the early days of the 12th lunar month and will last till the mid 1st lunar month of the next year. Of them, the most important days are Spring Festival Eve and the first three days. The Chinese government now stipulates people have seven days off for the Chinese Lunar New Year.
Many customs accompany the Spring Festival. Some are still followed today, but others have weakened.
On the 8th day of the 12th lunar month, many families make laba porridge, a delicious kind of porridge made with glutinous rice, millet, seeds of Job s tears, jujube berries, lotus seeds, beans, longan and gingko.
The 23rd day of the 12th lunar month is called Preliminary Eve. At this time, people offer sacrifice to the kitchen god. Now however, most families make delicious food to enjoy themselves.
