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.
On New Year's Eve, our class had a party. The atmosphere was good. It was out of the ordinary from the very begining. The boy student from one bedroom gave an unusual performance. We saw a boy named Li Xinmin turn off all the lights in a sudden snap. Then with three resounding crow of a cock echoing in the hall, the hall was again brightly lit in a snap.
Then, the representative of the bedroom Zhu Guozhang asked us to guess a line of a poem related to the above situation. He added that Li Xinmin alone was born in the year of the dog and the other three were all born in the year of the chicken. They left us all in confusion. And it was our monitor who was quickwitted. He shouted our, "The day breaks as the cock crows three times at dawn." The hall After that, they had another item. This time Li Xinmin was placed in the middle of the circle. While he was standing there, the other three stood around him, each bowing down to him at an angle of 120 degrees. It was an idiom. This time I got it right:"The dog stands out among a group of chickens."
