The Spring Festival is just around the corner. There is no feeling of celebrating the Spring Festival at all. It seems that the New Year's Eve is just a series of numbers on the calendar and has no more meaning. Now think about it, the busy purchasing of new year's goods several years ago and the sweeping of the year before, which used to be very resisted, have become so memorable, not to mention the rounded pork dumplings made by my mother on New Year's Eve. But it doesn't matter, I'm here to help you summarize the 13 most worthwhile Spring Festival celebrations in Los Angeles 2020, so that you can also feel the atmosphere of the Spring Festival in Los Angeles.
