    The Spring Festival is all about joyous reunions with family members, enjoying some scrumptious meals, garnering luck for the new year, and of course warding away the evil demon beast that brings withering destruction wherever he goes. In today's BST, learn all about this monster who returns year after year and the time-tested methods employed by the Chinese to scare him off as quickly as possible. Be sure to check out our newbie lesson on the New Year and our previous BST on Chinese Mythological Creatures!
