Learn About Chinese New Year: Rituals, Food, Family
Chinese New Year is based on a myth that involved a monster eating crops and people from Chinese villages. The population was finally able to drive the monster away due to his fear of the color red, and by leaving food on their doorsteps, and so what followed was jubilant celebration. While that myth is not as relevant to celebrations today, that doesn’t make present-day Chinese New Year any less remarkable. This holiday is seen as a time to gather with family and partake in the ancient rituals associated with the festival. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the cultural and historical significance of Chinese New Year.
