Top 3 Festivals in the Chinese Religion

The Chinese religions, not to be limited to Buddhism, is a very complex set of beliefs. Unlike many other religions and beliefs, the Chinese has a rather unified creed that is largely derived from three different religions (Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism). As such, there is an obvious potential for many festivals all year round, the top three being:
    Chinese New Year
    The Lantern Festival in ChinaThe Mid-Autumn Festival
Two of the above three are celebrated by almost every Chinese clan around the globe, although the names used to reference the festivals may vary. Chinese New Year, as the name suggests, marks the beginning of the New Year according to the traditional Chinese  calendar. It’s probably the most important and colourful festival and is also known as the Lunar New Year in some Chinese societies. The Lantern Festival is largely celebrated in China alone and by Chinese people who have originated in China. The celebration of this festival is singular to those that celebrate it, and  it has different names around the world. This Mid-Autumn Festival is a global Chinese religion festival greatly celebrated in China along the lines of a Thanksgiving Day.
