Chinese New Year Festival

If you grew up in the states, you may be surprised to find some important elements of American culture came from China. For example, most everyone has enjoyed fireworks although few Americans have heard the ancient story of how fireworks were used to drive away the "New Year Monster" that once terrorized a village in China, according to Chinese legend.
