  1. 1. China's traditional festivals have evolved through the centuries from past major events. • Long ago when people had a bountiful harvest, they gathered and celebrated their good fortune with gala performances. • When natural disasters struck, they offered sacrifices to the gods and their ancestors, hoping for a blessing. • The change of the seasons, flowers in spring, and the bright moon in autumn could all arouse their longing for a more beautiful life. • Thus, creative activities were held to signify these events. Gradually these activities developed into festivals. Made by Ouyang Xiaofang
