Long ago when people had a bountiful harvest, they
gathered and celebrated their good fortune with gala
performances.
When natural disasters struck, they offered sacrifices to
the gods and their ancestors, hoping for a blessing.
The change of the seasons, flowers in spring, and the
bring moon in autumn could all stir their longing for a
more beautiful life.
Thus, creative activities were held to signify these
events. Gradually, these activities developed into
festivals.

New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day are celebrated as
a family affair; a time of reunion and thanksgiving. The
celebration was traditionally highlighted with a religious
ceremony given in honor of Heaven and Earth; the gods
of the household and the family ancestors.
The most vital of all rituals is to provide sacrifices to the
ancestors. This unites the family with those who have
passed away. Departed relatives are remembered with
great respect because they were responsible for laying
the foundations for the present family.
