The Spring Festival is the most important festival in China. Most of the family members get together, just like Christmas in the Western. All people living away from home go back in Spring Festival. The busiest time for transportation systems of about half a month from the Spring Festival. Airports, railway stations and long-distance bus stations are crowded with people who want to go home. People all put the chinese word "fu" on the door. In China the "reversed fu" is homophonic with "fu comes", both being pronounced as "fudaole." What's more, two big red lanterns can be raised on both sides of the front door. It also mean good luck in the new year.
