The Manchu Spring Festival in Hetuala city in northeast China’s Liaoning Province has its own special features. As the Spring Festival approaches, every family will tidy up the house and courtyard. They will make their traditional snack – Saqima, which, by local practice, is made with refined flour, eggs, sugar, sesame seeds, fruits and melon seeds. It looks nice and tastes delicious. On the Lunar New Year’s Eve, people will write Spring Couplets, create paper cutouts, and portraits of Door Go, and wear little pouches. CGTN’s Guan Yang shows you how a Manchu family prepares for Spring Festival to help you learn more about the area’s unique culture.
