Traditional Festivals

Showcasing diverse styles and themes, traditional Chinese festivals are a significant part of the country’s history and culture. A close relationship exists between many of the traditional festivals, chronology, mathematics, the Chinese calendar and the 24 solar terms.

Many of the customs connected with the traditional festivals are linked to religious devotions, ancient superstitions and myths. In fact, the format of present-day festivals was established during the Han Dynasty (206-220 BC) and over the years, eminent poets have written countless masterpieces describing the festivals which are still recited today.
Almost every festival has its unique origins and customs which reflect the traditional practices and morality of the Chinese nation and its people overall. The grandest and most popular festivals are the Spring Festival, Lantern Festival, Qingming Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, and more.
