[Forum Event] Trivia: Chinese New Year and China Reply:835| View:22621
Edited by loa 1 events at 2018-2-28 23:16

Chinese New Year is coming to an end. Shortly will be the Lantern Festival, and then everyone will return to their homes, and go back to daily life, if they haven't already. But, there's so much more still to learn about, and so many new things to see!

For example:
Did you know that in China they use GEESE! instead of police dogs?
Did you know that in China, pedestrians on their phones have their own special lane?
Or that the worlds largest mall, located in China, sits 99% empty and almost always has?


Fan art by Sith Lord!

This event will be a little different than normal events. Its the first time we are trying this, and we hope that it works well, and that you guys like it!

How it works:
-A forum mod will post a question about Chinese New Year, Chinese culture, Chinese history, really anything having to do with China and its people. Only questions posted by moderators will be counted.
- You will respond with your answer, as well as your IGN server and platform.
- The first person to respond with all necessary information and the correct answer will get the prize for that question!
- You can only participate one time per IGN server, platform, and forum account, so choose carefully who of your characters you want to receive rewards.
-Please remember to use a regular reply like you would if you were following up a report. We dont see floor replies till its too late! Failure to use a regular reply will mean that your answers will not count!!!
Special notice from FreyaFM: excessive spamming meaning answering questions after you have already gotten a prize or just spamming the event with nonsense answers can get your forum account banned for the duration of the event (you if you have watched the past hunt events, you'll know we are serious about this ).

So that you are aware the types of questions that may be asked, there are going to be 3-5 different types of questions, ranging from short answer, to true or false, and even some fill in the blanks, or identify this object (you are given a picture and have to identify  what is shown in the image). Some questions may even relate back to ones already asked, so be sure to pay close attention to the question and the responses given.


Ill start us off with the first Question!

How many years are in 1 small year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac? (PS: this question has been asnwered. Head to the last page of the thread for the newest question!)

  • Chinese New Year begins with a festive dinner, noisy festivities and loud fireworks, as people believe that the louder the holiday, the happier and happier the year will be.

  • The Chinese love good luck - I mean who doesn't?!!!

    As a result, people love fireworks during festivals to invite good luck and scare away bad luck.  

    Lots of fireworks were originally used to frighten away ghosts and other evil spirits. It was believed that these evil spirits were afraid  of the loud sounds of the fireworks. As these bad spirits were frightened away so was the bad luck.

    All the firecrackers and red packets are red which is a symbol of luck in the Chinese culture.

    And of course a sky filled with fireworks is a sign of happiness and jollity which every Chinese person loves.

  • In the earliest version, villages in China used to be harassed by a monster creature called Nian.
    Efforts to kill the creature failed and then it was discovered that Nian can be deterred, frightened off with/by bright red colours and loud noises. The longer the noise made from gunpowder-filled receptacles, the faster Nian would go away and for a much longer time - 1 year's time by Chinese calendar reckoning.
    Thus, Chinese Lunar New Year was known as, Guo Nian, meaning Pass-over Nian.

  • In traditional Chinese culture, firework were originally used to scare away evil spirits.

    As the legend goes, a monster called Nian would come out to eat villagers and destroy their houses on each New Year’s Eve. The villagers discovered that burning dry bamboo to produce an explosive sound scared away the monster. Since then, it has become a tradition at Chinese New Year.

Peking Man (Chinese: 北京猿人; pinyin: Běijīng Yuánrén), Homo erectus pekinensis (formerly known by the junior synonym Sinanthropus pekinensis), is an example of Homo erectus. Discovered in 1923–27 during excavations at Zhoukoudian (Chou K'ou-tien) near Beijing  (written "Peking" before the adoption of the Pinyin romanization system), China, in 2009 this group of fossil specimens dated from roughly 750,000 years ago,[1] and a new 26Al/10Be dating suggests they are in the range of 680,000–780,000 years old.[2][
