A brief annotation Chinese New Year, which has a literal translation as a Spring Day, is the main and longest holiday in China for a long time. Each new year is associated with one of 12 animals and one of the five elements. The first New Year's Day starts with fireworks and burning of incense. The fireworks should ward off evil spirits from a family and attract spirit of peace and happiness. At the end of the day the family welcomes the return of the deities home after their visit to the spirit world where they "reported" about the last year, and then pay tribute to their ancestors. According to the Chinese that first spring day is the awakening of nature, begins a new calculation of the annual cycle, the earth revives.
