你最喜欢的中国节日是哪一个？What is your favorite Chinese holiday?
My favorite Chinese holiday is Spring Festival (Chinese New Year).It is a traditional festival holiday, and probably the most important. Every New Year, families reunite. On New Year’s Eve, we all get together to make dumplings, light firecrackers, and watch the Spring Festival Gala on TV. The next morning we wish everyone a happy new year and children receive money as a traditional gift – it’s a festive day. After Spring Festival,I always feel another year older, with greater responsibility on my shoulders. This inspires me to continue working hard to make myself a more outstanding person.
