The Chinese New Year is a festival of thanksgiving and ancestor worship, and a time of family reunion. It was brought into Thailand when the Chinese migrated here late in the Ayutthaya Period. The festival means so much to the Chinese and the Thais of Chinese descent the same way as Christmas means to the Westerners. The Chinese in Thailand has been harmoniously assimilated into the Thais but they have passed on their traditions and customs up to the present time as is evidenced by the fact that one of their festivals, Trut Chin, has been observed continuously for a long time. It has become one of the most exciting and spectacular celebrations in Thailand. The Chinese New Year is the first day of the Chinese lunar month which is regarded as the first day of the spring season. During these months, the weather is excellent. Thus, Trut Chin is called "Chun Jie" Day in Chinese. As China is an agricultural country, at the beginning of the growing season, there is a ritual to pay homage to gods and goddesses as well as ancestors to ask for a good harvest.
