Compare Chinese New Year with American New Year
Difference: Following is two differences between two customs.
Dates are different:
The Chinese New Year is based on lunar--calendar, but the American New Year is based on solar—calendar. So, both the dates of New Year are different even if the New Years are on January 1.
Festivities are different:

In the America, Americans like to have parties at New Year’s Eve. At ten seconds before midnight, people count down. After. People hug and kiss, and wish each other “Happy New Year”.


In Taiwan, people like to eat dinner with their families at Chinese New Year’s Eve. After dinner, it is time for the whole family to sit up for night while having fun playing cards or watching TV programs.
Similar: Actually, some else are similar even if the originalities are different.
Meanings of food:
Many parts of the U.S. celebrate the New Year by consuming black—eyed peas. These legumes are typically accompanied by either hog jowls or ham. Black—eyed peas and other legumes have been considered good luck in many cultures.
Practically, Taiwanese celebrate the New Year by consuming several food too. One of the most popular food is “Jiaozi”, dumplings boiled in water. “Jiaozi” in Chinese literally mean “sleep together and gave sons”, a long—lost good wish for a family.

Anywhere, people want to get have happiness by eating food.


Meanings of New Year:
Even though the two customs are different, most of people feel the same sentiment. With a new year, people can expect a new life. We wish each other good luck and promise ourselves to do better in the following year, in spite of someone who is Taiwanese or American.
