9781602201040: Chinese Customs

This colorfully illustrated Chinese culture book introduces all the traditional festivals and customs of China.

The background history and popular myths surrounding all the well-known festivals, including the Chinese New Year, the Lantern Festival and the Mid-Autumn Festival, are explored and detailed in each colorful chapter.

China is a vast country, and consequently different customs and ways of looking at the world have gradually developed over the course of Chines history. As the saying goes, habits differ within a radius of ten miles and customs within a hundred miles. Therefore, if you travel thousands of miles you will find a huge difference in ways of living.

A huge number of customs have become established over the centuries through man generations' observance. Today these customs have become permanent traditions, ingrained in society as an integral part of Chinese culture.
