  Spring Festival Eve

  People attach great importance to Spring Festival Eve. At that time, all family members eat dinner together. The meal is more luxurious than usual. Dishes such as chicken, fish and bean curd cannot be excluded, for in Chinese, their pronunciations, respectively "ji", "yu" and "doufu," mean auspiciousness, abundance and richness. After the dinner, the whole family will sit together, chatting and watching TV.

  In the first month of the lunar year,

  Waking up on New Year, everybody dresses up. First they extend greetings to their parents. Then each child will get red lucky money as a New Year gift, wrapped up in red envelopes.

  People in northern China will eat jiaozi, or dumplings, for breakfast, as they think "jiaozi" in sound means "bidding farewell to the old and ushering in the new". Also, the shape of the dumpling is like gold ingot from ancient China. So people eat them and wish for money and treasure.

  Being one of the traditional festivals, Chinese Spring Festival is the time for the whole families to reunite together, which is similar with Christmas Day to the westerners.

  Family’s safety and health is the most important, no matter in eastern or western, please accompany with them as much as possible. If you have to leave for while, our GPS tracker would be a great option for you to know their status.

  Tracking is caring, wish you and your family have a great new year, enjoy your peaceful life in 2018.
