The Chinese New Year, which lands on Feb. 14 this year, is a time for family. For people like Joshua Wu, whose family lives apart, the New Year is a time for them to get together and celebrate. “It’s a fun thing,” he said.
Wu added, that cleerbating in China and in the U.S. are different.
“China goes about it differently … what we usually do is families … come as a whole group. It’s a get-together.”
Some traditions include pasting doors with red paper, which has calligraphy written on it. Wu explained this is to give protection to the family and grant protection for the future. Additionally, he said adults will give money to children, which Wu joked, is a big incentive for youngsters to look forward to the New Year.
