(DALIANNEWS)- The Chinese New Year's Eve which falls on January 24 this year was a little bit special for the Russian girl Svetlana, who works as a web editor in Jinshitan, Dalian, a port city of Northeastern China's Liaoning Province. 

"This year the Chinese New Year's Eve jumps together with my birthday, so we celebrate two holidays at the same time.", said Svetlana with excitement.



Svetlana came to Dalian in January last year, and she celebrated last Chinese New Year with her family in Jinshitan by visiting a lantern exhibition and enjoying lots of fireworks there. The splendid fireworks impressed this Russian girl a lot, so she decided to purchase some fireworks this year for the celebrations of both her birthday and the Spring Festival.  

"I bought the biggest firework I could find, and set it off on the Chinese New Year's Eve. The firework is so beautiful in the night sky. We really enjoy the festive air of the celebration. ", said Svetlana happily. 



As the dumplings are the typical food for the Spring Festival, Svetlana also made some dumplings together with her family. Apart from that, the family also prepared a big birthday cake for Svetlana.

"Spring Festival is very similar to the Russian new year's holiday, but unlike the latter it is celebrated on different dates every year. I am so happy that I could celebrate my birthday together with this amazing festival this year in Dalian.", said Svetlana with a big smile. 

Svetlana also likes the Spring Festival decorations very much. “The red lanterns, couplets, Chinese knots and other Spring Festival decorations are so beautiful that I can't help buying some of them to decorate my home. ” , she said joyfully.
