The origin of Chinese New Year comes from legend. One legend is that thousands of years ago, a monster named "Nian" would attack villagers at the beginning of each new year. Monsters are afraid of noise, light, and red, so they use those things to drive away beasts. A lucky and prosperous celebration to welcome the old year and bring the new year, usually including firecrackers, fireworks and red clothes and decorations. Young people get money in colorful red envelopes. Also, Chinese New Year is a time for feasts and family visits.
Although the Spring Festival is celebrated on the first day of the first lunar month, the preparations for the new year generally begin from "Laba". There is a sacrificial stove on the 23rd of the twelfth lunar month in the middle, which is called "Xiao Nian" by the people, followed by New Year's Eve, until the fifteenth day of the first lunar month. After the Lantern Festival, the Chinese New Year is over.
Before the festival, every household should clean the dust, when the festival is coming, they should put up door gods, New Year pictures, Spring Festival couplets, and hanging signs.
In ancient times, during the Spring Festival, large-scale Nuo exorcism activities were held to exorcise disease and severe ghosts, pray for the safety of people and animals, and the harvest of grains. and other recreational activities.
