In order to protect the environment, fireworks are not allowed all the time. The government will set the fireworks for the New Year, and people are allowed to use fireworks during the period, which is half a month before the Chinese New Year and half a month after the Chinese New Year. But people can watch a lot of beautiful fireworks by the government and many big companies allowed.

The New Year’s Gala for the Chinese New Year is so important that everyone in China watches it every year. Also, for the New Year, CCTV 1 also does a very good concert every year. It is a live show with a lot of famous singers. People usually have dinner during the concert time.


Then, the final important thing is the dinner! Chinese people do a lot of dinners for every holiday, so children are always most excited for the food!
