How do we greet each other during the Chinese New Year?
Listen now
During the Spring Festival holidays, the Chinese people pay visits or give New Year’s greetings to each other, which are not done as you wish but in accordance with some traditions and etiquettes. But please be noticed, this year’s Spring Festival is quite different to the Chinese people, due to the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan City. Some traditions to celebrate the Chinese New Year have to be dropped for now for the sake of health and safety. But I believe as soon as the epidemic passes, everything will get back to its normal track.
