    The Chinese people celebrate New Year's Eve in the first new moon of February; it changes every year. The celebration takes two weeks from the new moon to the full moon. People wear red clothes during New Year because red brings good luck in the future. They also decorate their houses with colorful flowers and oranges; the oranges bring happiness. They usually meet with their relatives at New Year. They open doors and windows at midnight to allow the old year go out. The Chinese used to count years with a simple and practical system; they named the years with animals. This was better because people didn't have to remember their ages. For example they could say, " I was born in the year of the dog."

    You have too many run-on sentences.
    Be sure to capitalize proper nouns.
    Be careful with the word "it"...
    The reader needs to know what "it" refers to.
