Li Hua: The Spring Festival is drawing close. By then we will have seven days off. I am expecting it.

Mary: Can you tell me something about the Spring Festival?

Li Hua: Just like you celebrate Christmas, we celebrate our lunar New Year's Day, the Spring Festival. It is a time for the family members and relatives to have a get-together.

李华:春节就要到了。到时我们会放七天假。我盼着这一天的到来。

玛丽:你能给我讲讲春节吗?

李华:就像你们过圣诞节一样,我们庆祝我们的农历新年——春节。这是家人和亲友团聚的时刻。

Li Hua: Oh, railway stations are so crowded these days! Every carriage is packed to the fullest.

Mary:  Do people have to go to their parents' home on the Chinese New Year?

Li Hua: Nearly all people do. Anyway, it's the tradition. Spring Festival is the most important festival for us.

Mary: Any special activities?

Li Hua: There are many. Houses are cleaned and decorated with New Year paintings and Spring Festival couplets. People buy new clothes, visit relatives and small children could get a small sum of money as a gift. A lot of food is prepared for the occasion.

李华:现在火车站好拥挤!每节车厢人都满满的。

玛丽:中国人过新年必须要回父母家吗?

李华:几乎所有人都会回去,习俗就是这样。春节是我们最重要的节日。

玛丽:有什么特别的活动吗?

李华:可多了。打扫房屋,挂年画,贴春联,买新衣服,拜访亲友,小孩子会得到压岁钱,还会准备很多好吃的。
