A Confused Chinese New Year By Talise Peele

On January 28th, 2017 there was a six year old girl named Ming and her twin brother Ning. They we're visiting Beijing and it was their first time seeing the Chinese New Year. They didn't understand why everyone was so exited. They were watching the parade. Ning was frightened when a dragon came close to him. Then he saw legs and hands. He felt relived when he realized that the dragon was just a costume. It was nearly midnight and they were watching people set up fireworks. In America they use the count down to start off the New Year. Ning was sleeping but Ming was awake. She wondered why there wasn't a big crystal ball getting lower and lower. She almost doze off until their parents screamed ''HAPPY NEW YEAR''. She jumped and Ning started crying after being startled by the loud fire crackers. They realized that it was a tradition for Americans and Chinese people to celebrate the New Year, but they have different ways of celebrating. Then they received red envelopes filled with money from their parents and enjoyed the rest of the festival.
