For Chinese people, the Spring Festival is one of the most important festivals. Many people who work or study outside have to climb mountains and rivers to get together with their families. The train or air tickets before the festival are very tight, so it is difficult to get one ticket. In recent years, China's high-speed rail has been operating intensively, which greatly alleviates the problem of transportation during the Spring Festival.
Let's talk about the Chinese Spring Festival.
The Spring Festival, the lunar new year, is the beginning of the year and the traditional festival. It is commonly known as the new year, the new year, the new year, the new year's day, the new year's year, the new year's day, the new year's year, and so on. It is also known orally as the new year's day, the new year's day, the new year's Eve, and the new year's day. The Spring Festival has a long history, which evolved from the worship of praying for new year in ancient times.
All things are based on heaven and people are based on ancestors. Praying for the new year, offering sacrifices to heaven and worshiping the ancestors are the same.

Influenced by Chinese culture, some countries and regions in the world also have the custom of celebrating the new year. According to incomplete statistics, nearly 20 countries and regions have designated Chinese Spring Festival as a legal holiday for the whole or some cities under their jurisdiction. Spring Festival, Qingming Festival, Dragon Boat Festival and Mid Autumn Festival are known as China's four traditional festivals. With the approval of the State Council, the Spring Festival folk custom has been listed in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage list.
In ancient times, people began to "busy the new year" from the 23 or 24 sacrificial stoves at the end of the year, and the new year didn't end until the 19th of the first month. In modern times, people set the Spring Festival on the first day of the first month of the lunar calendar, but it usually ends at least on the fifteenth day of the first month.

When is the Chinese Spring Festival holiday?
According to the solar calendar, the dates are different every year. The legal holidays in 2021 are from February 11 to February 17. For many private enterprises, such as gmtlight, the office staff are subject to legal holidays, but the workers in workshop are not the same. Because there are many workers in the workshop who need to return to their hometown for the festival, they usually leave the factory 7-10 days in advance and return to the factory 7-10 days later. So for production, the Spring Festival holiday is generally from February 1 to February 27.
