What traditions do the whole family keep on Chinese New Year's Eve? Why do elders give "New Year Money"? On February 2, why does my mother take me to get a haircut?
For children, the direct way to understand Chinese traditional culture is to start with educating them on festivals and folk customs that are closely related to daily life.
This book selects 13 important traditional Chinese festivals and uses humorous language, exquisite and intuitive hand drawings to explain the origin, allusions, etiquette, and customs of each festival. Poems, proverbs and folklores are interspersed in the text to give readers a relaxed and interesting reading experience. There are also special topics such as modern festivals, traditional festivals of ethnic minorities, festivals in poems, and twenty-four solar terms, so that readers not only learn about how they function but also why they exist.
