Chinese immigrants

Some of the Chinese cultural contributions are Chinese new year, a 2 week long festival that is celebrated in January and February. And the moon festival in honor of the full moon. Chinese also use chopsticks a wooden stick used for eating. Chinese also make most of our toys. They make the toys in china and ship them to lots of different states and countries! The reason that the Chinese came to U.S. is because in 1839 to 1842 a war destroyed farmland in china then people could not feed their families because they couldn't farm, this is a environmental reason. In 1850 to 1864 floods and droughts also made Chinese people start looking for other countries to move to.
