Celebration of Chinese New Year Part-5

Posted on at

There is a great feast on the seventh day. The Chinese believe that the man came into the world on the seventh day, so this is a birthday for everybody.

People serve raw fish with winegar and spices on the seventh day.

On the fifteenth day or the day of the full moon, fire crackers are lit to frighten away evil spirits.

In the evening young girls throw oranges into the sea or river. As they do this they say a silent prayer that will help them find a good husband.

The young men throw dried carrots into the river and pray that they find a good wife.

The full moon shines on the land of the Chinese where the celebrations come to an end at midnight.
