春節的由來 History of Chinese New Year
Speaking of Chinese New Year（Lunar New Year）, the story of “Nien” needs to be mentioned. The story goes around the wild beast “Nien” that appeared at the end of every year, attacking and killing people. One day, someone found that noises and bright lights were used to scare the beast away. Therefore, people set off firecrackers every year to keep the beast away, and the tradition stays till today, and that becomes the beginning of Chinese New Year.
