I had a toast after that. We drank Root Beer. Now, here's the story of Nian. I will give a quiz afterwards.
A Chinese New Year story
In a village, it was always peaceful, except on one day, the new moon day. Nian would go to the village and scare all he villagers. But one day, before the new moon, a wise man told them what Nian was afraid of. "He is afraid of loud noises, the colour red and fire.". The next day, the villagers wore red from head to toe, banged loud drums and lit every firecracker they had. Nian was scared and ran far away. From that they onwards, they called it 'Chinese New Year'.
