My home and the Spring Festival Our Happiness
Ting Li and Yuanyuan Zhan joined the Road Property Management Department of Guangzhou Daguang Expressway Co, Ltd. to work on the road administration team in 2015. This young couple got married in December 2019 and had a wedding in December 2020.
As the staff on the frontline of transportation, the closer it comes to the holidays the busier they are. According to the customs of Yuanyuan Zhan’s hometown, they need to go back and pay my parents a New Year visit during the first Spring Festival after their marriage. However, the young couple have chosen to stay in Guangzhou because they are busy with work and the COVID-19 pandemic is still raging on.
When the Spring Festival arrived, Ting Li and Yuanyuan Zhan bought the most popular items used to celebrate the Chinese New Year under Qilou, a unique style of architecture with Guangzhou’s characteristics. They basked in the warm winter sun on the sightseeing bus shuttling the city’s new central axis, and then took a house spring clean, made Spring Festival holiday purchases, put up window flowers, etc. Fai chun, window flowers and fortune characters decorated their small home, overflowing with joy and happiness.
“We chose to take our parents through filming to experience Guangzhou’s New Year vibes and have a different reunion.” Ting Li and Yuanyuan Zhan said with a smile, “As the staff on the frontline of transportation, we should do a good job during the Spring Festival travel season, especially given that the pandemic has not receded. This is our responsibility. When we are here, home is here, and the Chinese New Year is here. It’s just as happy to have the Chinese New Year here!”
