Cultural Crusaders Keep Spring Festival Traditions Alive
Are Chinese Lunar New Year traditions dying? While many young people complain the country’s biggest festival is losing its “authentic feel,” some small groups — both young and old — are quietly working to revive some traditions that are on the verge of disappearing.
“Chinese people are starting to value traditional culture and are becoming increasingly confident, especially after learning a lot from other developed countries since the opening-up policy, when many Chinese were more inclined to adopt Western culture and festivals,” said Yin Hubin, a folk customs researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
