Chinese new year

Kung Hei Fat Choi is how you wish people a happy new year in China. You might hear this saying all around the world because there are lots of Chinese people  and  Communities in different places. Chinese people have celebrated this very old tradition for fifteen days every year for a very very long time.

A long time ago a monster liked to scare people every year. The people were very afraid of the dragon so the people wore red and lit fireworks and played drums to make noises to scare the dragon away.

In the Chinese New Year they use the colours red and gold. Red represents good luck,and gold represents wealth.
