Spring Festival She Huo Carnival

“She Huo” literally translated as “Community Fire” is the general name referring to a series of celebrations during the Spring Festival, including singing and dancing, sacrifices to gods and prayers for good fortune.

In traditional Chinese society, people mainly relied on farming, so the earth is the material foundation for the development of people’s lives while fire, is the resource by which people can cook food and keep themselves warm, and an absolute necessity for the survival and development of human beings.
