In 1911, the Revolution of 1911 led by Sun Yat-sen overthrew the rule of the Qing Dynasty and established the Republic of China. In order to "travel Xiazheng, so follow the agricultural period, from the Western calendar, so the statistics", the first year of the Republic of China decided to use the Gregorian calendar (actual use is 1912), and stipulated that January 1 of the Gregorian calendar (Gregorian calendar) as the "New Year", but not Called "New Year's Day".
The "New Year's Day" referred to today is the first plenary meeting of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference on September 27, 1949. While deciding to establish the People’s Republic of China, it also decided to adopt the universal AD chronology and change the Gregorian calendar. January 1 is officially designated as "New Year's Day", and the first day of the first month of the lunar calendar is changed to "Spring Festival".
Since New Year's Day was born during the Republic of China and evolved from the Spring Festival, when China just started celebrating the New Year's Day, the customs and customs of celebration were of course similar to the Spring Festival, or a reduced version of the Spring Festival. After all, New Year’s Day is not a traditional holiday in our country. Although some traditional methods of celebration such as setting off firecrackers, killing three lives, worshipping ghosts and gods, and worshiping ancestors are used, they do not see how important it is in people’s minds. . In modern times, the custom of celebrating New Year's Day is even simpler.
It is known throughout China and even the whole world. Many countries have designated New Year's Day as a legal holiday and have a holiday on New Year's Day. After the founding of New China, New Year's Day was also stipulated as a legal holiday.
Activities organized by groups are now more common, such as a New Year’s Day party, hanging slogans to celebrate New Year’s Day, or holding group activities. In the past, there were organizations that beat gongs and drums, and collectively dance ethnic dances. They can now be watched on TV documentaries. Today, with the development of science and technology, it has evolved into a gala or something. In recent years, there have been tourism, gatherings and other programs. Anyway, there is not much tradition on New Year's Day, and people can play on this day after the holiday. Even, New Year's Day only means one day's holiday for the younger generation.
The traditional Chinese way of celebration is to use folk, especially in rural areas. Every New Year's Day, every household will set off firecrackers, slaughter chickens and geese, and after worshipping the gods of all parties, it is a family reunion meal.
