The Chinese New Year Festivity
Trips to Beijing, Shanghai and Xian expose you to China. A visit to Shandong confronts you with the real China. Join Weifang farmers to celebrate Chinese New Year in an exotic way. People at Weifang still carry out their rituals by the clock from the New Year Eve to Jan 15th. Food, clothes to wear, gift exchanges, words of good wishes by ranks of families and co-workers, tips to the elder and the young, festivity table protocols, bow to parents, drinking protocols, time to visit in-laws, all performed exactly over thousands of years, thanks to the guidance of Confucius’ “relationship” building. Our Weifang friends often engage in discussions about how Weifang maintains its cultural authenticity compared with places that are losing this cultural heritage.
