Huainan Introduction

     Huainan City is located in the hinterland of east China and along the bank of Huai River. It is an important city in the north central part of Anhui Province. Huainan has a long history. The finding of the fossil “Huainan Insect” more than 800 million years removed from modern times pushes more than 200 million years ahead of the statement that origin of life is less than 600 million years. The fossil tooth of anthropoid apes more than 300 million years removed from modern times is the earliest in Asia. The “Bagongshan Geological Park” within the borders has rich geological connotations and relics from time immemorial, which have relatively high value in scientific research and ornamental aesthetics. Huainan has profound cultural foundation. There are a large number of scenic resorts and historic site in Huainan, including the “five gus (ancients)” commended by archaeologists home and abroad (namely, ancient battlefield, ancient tombs, ancient Shouzhou kilns, ancient Maoxian cave and ancient fossil organism). The Battle o­n Fei River is a famous specific example of a battle in the military history in which the less and weaker defeated the much and stronger. The flower drum lamp in the Huai River basin is reputed as “oriental ballet”.

Huainan Festivals

      The Spring Festival is the most important festival for the Chinese people and is when all family members get together, just like Christmas in the West. All people living away from home go back, becoming the busiest time for transportation systems of about half a month from the Spring Festival. Airports, railway stations and long-distance bus stations are crowded with home returnees.
The Spring Festival falls o-n the 1st day of the 1st lunar month, often o-ne month later than the Gregorian calendar. It originated in the Shang Dynasty (c. 1600 BC-c. 1100 BC) from the people's sacrifice to gods and ancestors at the end of an old year and the beginning of a new o-ne.
Strictly speaking, the Spring Festival starts every year in the early days of the 12th lunar month and will last till the mid 1st lunar month of the next year. Of them, the most important days are Spring Festival Eve and the first three days. The Chinese government now stipulates people have seven days off for the Chinese Lunar New Year.

      The Festival of Lanterns takes place at the end of the Chinese New Year Celebration, o-n the fifteenth day of the first moon.  Lanterns have been part of Chinese life for centuries so it's not surprising to see a festival of lanterns.   People usually hang lanterns in the gardens, outside the houses, and o-n the boats.  These lanterns are signposts to guide guests and spirits of ancestors to the Lunar celebration.  After a sumptuous fifteen-day feast, these lanterns light the way for the spirits back to the world beyond.
Silk, paper and plastic lanterns vary in shape and size and are usually multi-colored. Some are in the shapes of butterflies, birds, flowers, and boats.  Other are shaped like dragon, fruit and animal symbols of that year.  The most popular type of lantern is the "horse-racing" o-ne, in which figures or animals rotate around the vertical axis of the lantern.
The special food for the Lantern Festival is Yuen Sin or Tong Yuen.  These are round dumplings made with sticky rice flour.  They can be filled and served as a sweet snack or made plain and cooked in a soup with vegetables, meat and dried shrimp.  The round shape of the dumpling is a symbol of wholeness, completeness and unity.
The Lantern Festival is an occasion for families to get together and for everyone--young, old, rich and poor to have fun.
