This year marks the first year that Chinese Spring Festival has been officially listed as a UN floating holiday. From a Chinese traditional folk festival to a UN floating holiday, the Spring Festival, as an important part of traditional Chinese culture, is showing its unique charm and influence to the world. The correspondents of Great Wall International Communication Center from the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Nigeria and other countries have recently sent reports on how locals celebrate Chinese Spring Festival.

During the Spring Festival, Alina introduced cultures about Chinese Spring Festival to her friends and relatives in Elista City, Russia.
