Chinese spring festival, also known as Lunar New Year, has over 4000 years of history. Many people in the world believe that China is the only country celebrating spring festival as a national holiday. While in fact, there are a lot of other countries also celebrate this festival, which even many Chinese don't know. For example, many countries in Southeast Asia have been conducting spring festival celebrations for many years. In addition, growing number of European and American countries began to organize festivities annually.

中国人过农历新年到今天已经有四千多年的历史了,虽然全世界都认为春节是中国独有的节日,但事实上并不是只有中国会过农历新年哦。被华人华侨所辐射的东南亚地区已经过了很多年的春节,另外还有很多欧美国家受中国文化感染,每年也会举办庆祝活动。来看看其他国家的春节有没有什么不一样的玩法!

Vietnam越南

 

As a neighbor country to China, spring festival traditions in Vietnam are very much alike in China, for instance, hanging colorful lanterns and putting up couplets. Besides, thanks to the warm climate, Vietnam has a unique spring festival tradition as having flower fairs.

作为邻居,越南人的春节习惯和我们非常相近。由于地处热带,除了挂灯笼贴对联,越南还有个独特的新年习俗就是逛花市。花市期间,大小街道路边都会摆满五颜六色的鲜花,越南人民一边赏花一边迎接春天和新年。

Thailand泰国

 

There are many Chinese in Thailand, estimated to be 8.5 million, most of which are immigrates. Although spring festival is not a statutory holiday in Thailand, they have conducted celebrations for many years. Now with the increasing number of Chinese tourists, spring festival is gaining attention in Thailand. The streets are decorated with red lanterns and beautiful lights.

泰国的华人非常多,多为移民,约有八百五十多万人口。很早以前他们就也跟中国一样会庆祝农历新年,虽然不是法定节假日,但这些年随着中国游客的涌入,泰国的春节也越来越隆重了。在热闹的街区会张灯结彩,挂上大红灯笼。
