With the clock striking 12 pm,piles of fireworks as well as bars of firecrackers were let off to celebrate the magnific moment .At the same time ,my family members were seated together to enjoy a well-prepared feast in memory of the past.
On New Year's Eve, we got together at my grandparents' home. We had a big dinner with 10 courses. However, the whole chicken, whole duck and the pork leg were not touched. My grandparents said that they would have finished those first when they were young. Obviously, times had changed. We just picked some delicious seafood.
After dinner, I went outside with my cousins. We lit fireworks and firecracker. The dark sky became colorful. We shouted and jumped when we saw the fireworks shooting into the sky and exploded into leaves and flowers, gold, red, green or purple.
Some of my cousins held the firecrackers in their hands and lit them and then threw them up. The firecrackers cracked up in the sky and made all of us laugh heartily.
We played and played until midnight. At that time, all the kids lit their fireworks and firecrackers at the same time. The whole sky was lit up in a moment and happy noise made whole neighborhood very high with excitement. What a great evening!spring festival's eve is the last night in the last month of lunar calendar next to spring festival day，the first day of new year. chuxi，the chinese name of spring festival's eve，means the old year past and we will greet the new by the turn of year. during all festival，the activities or celebrations focus on praying for good fortunes and getting rid of bad fortunes. in ancient china's zhou and qin dynasty，when it came to lunar new year，royal palace would have a ritual named danuo，to drive away ghost and bad luck of illness and disaster，it was also called "zhuchu（to drive away）". people called the day before spring festival's eve before-year's night，so the spring festival's eve constantly is year's night. the spring festival's eve is a most lingered night. in this warm eve，when night coming，youngsters handle a stick of incense to ignite the firecrackers，a child plugs up his ear by one hand and leans to ignite the fireworks by another，other children cover their ears aside to wait fireworks' happy bang impatiently. although some senior citizens are old， they still could remember what a beautiful spring festival they had in their childhood. to have a family super，make sacrifice and stay up a whole night for greeting new year's coming are the main three activities in the spring festival eve.
