Learning Mandarim, Learning Traditions...

by - 7:25 AM

Hello beauty pies!

Today I come with a different post, as you all know by this time I'm learning Mandarim and yesterday our professor gave us a "" card.
But first... What is The Spring Festival?
The Spring Festival is the most important festival in China. According to the Lunar Calendar or Chinese calendar this mark the beginning of a new year. In other words, it is a New Year to the Chinese.
"[] (meaning blessedness, fortune or good luck) character is a tradition for Chinese people during [chūn-jié] Spring Festival each year.
The "" character is often posted upside-down. It is said that this is because the character for "upside-down", "" [dào], is a homonym of the character for "to arrive", "" [dào]. So this means that "" (happiness, good fortune, etc.) is "arriving".
And this year is the  [má] (horse) year. So... "Happy New Year!".
The "" character it's to be inside home, and hang on the door.
