Did you know how Chinese New Year was started?

There used to be a 'man eating' monster called Nian living deep under the ocean. He would come up on the land once a year and eat everything around him and get back to water. The people were scared of the day he would come on the land. One day, a traveler to this land gave them the secret to keep Nian away. The secret was to light crackers, carry red lanterns, paste red wallpapers and wear red clothes on the eve of Nian's arrival. The people followed his advice and Nian did not come on land. These activities became a routine every year and Nian never showed up again. The day Nian used to come on the land is observed as Chinese New Year’s Day and the activities are part of New Year's eve.

Treamis student Julien Peng narrated the story in Chinese followed by English translation during Chinese New Year celebrated at Treamis on February 8.
