China New Year 2014 is around the corner. Most of people will go home and live together with families to celebrate New Year. Spring Festival is a grand traditional festival in China. CCTV holds Spring Festival Gala Evening every year. Thousands of families will sit together before TV and watch Spring Festival Gala Evening. It is so easy for people who are residing in China to watch Spring Festival Gala Evening but not for overseas Chinese.
