The Spring Festival, or the Chinese Lunar New Year, falls on Feb. 12 this year. It has a history of more than 4,000 years. For the Chinese it is the most significant traditional festival, and also an important occasion for family reunion. It is the busiest time for China’s transportation system. This year, governments at all levels urge people to stay at their current residing localities and reduce travel times during the Spring Festival holiday, to prevent spreading the epidemic. Nevertheless, we can still feel the festive atmosphere. Localities are spruced up with festive decorations: red lanterns, flags, and couplets with Chinese character “福”, blessings or happiness while ensuring epidemic prevention and control. Wish you all a happy and prosperous Year
