1. Introduction 

With the fast-speed development in science and technology, globalization is taking a fast pace in contemporary society, people from different nations are likely to communicate more frequently in the fields such as politics, economy, technology and culture. In a context of different cultures, misunderstandings and conflicts are perhaps to arise in the process of communication when people have little awareness of the existence of perse cultural values and beliefs. So, in order to promote the cross-cultural communication, it is significant for us to have a good awareness and understanding of cultural differences. However, festivals are valuable cultural heritage of various countries, which is also the reason why traditional festivals in China and some western countries have little in common. In light of the fact that festivals in China and America serve as an intriguing window into their cultural differences, a comparative study of them is meaningful. The cultural contrasts are reflected by their different origins, various ways for people to celebrate the festivals and perse food habits. This paper aims to look into the cultural differences in traditional festivals both in China and America based on the analysis of traditional festivals in the two cultures with similar cultural connotation. The author would like to pide her paper into two parts. In the first part, the author would give a brief introduction to the main three important traditional festivals in China which are Spring Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, and Qixi Festival, and in America which are Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Valentine’s Day. And an analysis on the cultural differences of these six festivals from the perspective of origins, customs and food habits will be carried out. Moreover, three specific strategies, to promote some traditional festivals with little reputation across the world would be provided in the second part.  浅析中美重要传统节日的文化差异:http://www.lwfree.com/yingyu/lunwen_58960.html
