Last week I celebrated the Chinese New Year and for me as a foreigner it was really interesting. I like the fact that many people in chinese culture have big families, so if you don't see each other very often you can share more time together.


In my country we don't have a celebration during the same period of the Chinese New Year, but we actually do the same during December 24th and 25th (Christmas) and December 31st and January 1st (New Year), gather with family, eat a lot or travel somewhere, if possible. I think if you don't spend a lot of time with family it can be very entertaining but I understand that you can feel bored easily, sometimes you feel there are not many things you can do, but is always good to use your free time during the holidays on a smart way, keep studying!
