Everything about this traditional festival is meant to bring families closer, which means all your relatives, from your eldest aunt to the youngest baby, will visit your house before, during and after Spring Festival.
Traditionally, people spend a lot of money buying food and home supplies ahead of Spring Festival. In former times, this was the time in the year when people with limited income would allow themselves a little bit of extravagance: either a new suit, a trendy hat or some sweets.

Nowadays, since it costs much less to buy festive treats, more is spent on snacks and nuts to accommodate visitors, who will munch away while chatting, leaving you not a single piece by the time they return home. And then you’ll have to start tidying again, to clean up the mess they’ve left!
