My Favourite Day - Chinese New Year

 

Chinese New Year is celebrated in many countries around the world. Each new year is named after one of twelve animals. 2012 was the year of the dragon, 2013 the year of the snake, and 2014 is the year of the horse.

Listen to a girl telling us about why she likes Chinese New Year, and what she does at this time.

My favorite day is New Year's Eve. At midnight, everybody wake up and children too. The children have lucky money from there parents. On that day we eat banh chung. The old people usually wear ao dai but the children don't wear ao dai the girls, they usually were dress or skirt with shirt. And the boys, they usually wear t-shirt with pants. In new year, everybody always decorate their house to make it beautiful.
