Abstract
Festivals granted with special meanings of the social culture not only are the embodiment of people’s colourful life, but also the generalization and the extension of each country’s economy, polities, culture as well as religion. Traditional festivals are the complicated phenomenon of social culture, which conclude character, belief, conception, the way of thinking, morality and aesthetic habits that are formed and deposited in its long history river. Nowadays, with the development of the technology and economy, the connections between different countries have becoming more and more tight and a vast majority of people start to realize the importance of learning English , but they ignore the significance of the different culture in different countries, which is pretty improper and conflicts are easy to occur. Therefore, festivals are the easy access for us to learn the foreign custom and culture as the indispensable part of the culture. By the means of comparison and contrast of these two countries’ important festivals in the Spring Festival and the Christmas, it’s conductive to absorb American civilization rationally, to protect our national culture’s quintessence as well as to promote intercultural communication.
