There are many festivals in China. Among them, I like the Spring Festival most. Not only because it’s the biggest festival in the year, but also because it’s a new beginning that brings hope to people and it’s time for family gathering. Before the festival, people come home no matter where they are. Usually, we have a big dinner on the New Year’s Eve. And then families sit together and share their lives or planes. Some will play games or hang out to have some fun. On the New Year’s Day, people get up early and say good words to anyone they meet. Children can get lucky money from relatives. In the following days, we will visit relative’s home and bring New Year’s wishes to them. In short, it’s a time for family to get together and all of us to enjoy it.

The Spring Festival is the most important festival for Chinese and it's my favorite festival, too. Like Christmas in the West, all people living away from home go back about half a month before the Spring Festival.
The Spring Festival falls on the 1st day of the 1st lunar month. On Spring Eve, my family watch the Spring Gala together and on the midnight, we set off firecrackers to ring out the old year and ring in the new one. My grandmother told me that Year is a monster so that people play firecrackers to drive it away. I also pay a new year visit to my grandparents and relatives and they always give me some gift money. As a result, I like Spring Festival very much.
Nowadays, more and more people in China begin to celebrate foreign festivals. But I think we shouldn't forget our traditional festivals. They are the culture and customs of China. To be a Chinese, we should know them well and pass them on to the next generations in future!
Thanksgiving Day is one of the most important festivals in America. It’s most closely connected to the earliest history of the country.

There are many other delicious dishes to celebrate this festival, such as sweet potato and pumpkin pie. This is the most important meal in a year for the Americans, so it’s a time for family gathering.
