    A new year, a new beginning, people want to have a better life in the comming year. So they dress up with new and nice clothes to celebrate.

    And in the old society, most chinese people are poor and don't have much money. The chinese new year (we call it spring festival) like christmas day in western country is the most important festival. Only at this time poor families will buy new clothes and candies and eat better food like chinese dumplings.
