Temple Fairs (Â∫ô‰ºö) are one of the most traditional customs in China. Many Chinese cannot miss these events during the Spring Festival. In Beijing, Changdian (ÂéÇÁî∏Â∫ô‰ºö)and Ditan(Âú∞ÂùõÂ∫ô‰ºö) fairs are two major ones for the Lunar New Year. People hang out there to eat traditional snacks, watch shows, and shop Beijing local goods.
