Overview
The Chinese love to celebrate with festivals. Their biggest celebration is Chinese New Year, or The Spring Festival, and it ends on the first full moon of the lunar year. The holiday lasts for two weeks and hundreds of millions of fireworks are set off all over the country. Long ago, a famous poet named Qu Yuan threw himself into the river when he became heartbroken. As people rushed to save him in their boats, they threw rice to feed the fish so they would not eat the beloved man. Today they honor him with the Dragon Boat Festival and people leave work to have boat races and toss rice into the river. For Mid-Autumn Festival the Chinese like to visit family and eat moon cakes. Come along and let’s see what other fun awaits as we “Celebrate in China!”

About the author
Tommy believes that celebration is the most important part of humanity. Congregating, sharing, supporting and being part of something bigger is what feeds our spirit, makes us stronger and lifts us to greater heights. When we take time to reflect upon and recognize the hard work, commitment, sacrifice and achievement of others, we also honor ourselves, who we are and what we stand for. Tommy loves to celebrate and believes that you must find happiness wherever you are and everywhere you go. He is also very thankful for life on Earth and is proud that every society known to mankind has given thanks in their own special ways. And what are celebrations without parades, feasting, dancing and jubilation? Come see how the Chinese celebrate their favorite holidays in Tommy’s most festive book in his ‘China for Children’ series. What are you waiting for? Let’s celebrate in China!
