the spring festival is coming shortly. you intend to invite your foreign friend to come to china and spend the traditional chinese festival together. write a letter to him/her:
1）express your warm invitation to him/her，
2）introduce the spring festival，and
3）mention the places you will accompany him/her to visit.
first of all，please allow me to express my heartfelt invitation to you. since the spring festival is coming shortly，i sincerely invite you to come to china and spend the holiday with me.
spring festival is of much importance to chinese people. it has a long history and chinese have attached much importance to the holiday. to be exact，the spring festival has been the most significant holiday. the spring festival is to chinese what christmas is to the westerners.
if you come，i am going to accompany you to fairgrounds（庙会），where you can have a close look at some of the chinese traditions.
i am looking forward to your reply.
