2014 Taipei Lunar New Year Festival

January 25, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Chinese New Year is the most important festival of the year for Chinese people all over the world. Since Shang Dynasty, more than 3700 years ago, the foundation of people’s daily routine and belief has been laid on agriculture, where many customs, like Wei-Ya Feast and Lantern Festival have developed throughout the year. There are many lively and bountiful traditional activities, such as Wei-Ya, making offerings to the Kitchen God to mark his return to Heaven, and the housecleaning afterwards, doing New Year’s shopping, family reunion, New Year’s Eve Dinner, Chinese New Year greetings, Incense Race, and annual spring hike – all of which make Chinese New Year that much more anticipated.

Today, the face of society isn’t what it was use to be, and many traditional customs have been gradually forgotten. The spirit of an agricultural society, however, still lives in various forms, in which the four rituals “gift-giving, reunion, out with the old, in with the new, and sightseeing” are the four main themes and Chinese New Year activities.
