China goes back to its roots for the new year

Millions of workers, students and families leave big cities to return to their rural villages for year-end festivities.

    Rural villages in China are filled with workers who have returned home for the Chinese Lunar New Year. 

    Many rural Chinese move hundreds of miles to work in factories, and a huge number return home for new-year festivities.

    They are part of the largest annual mass migration of humans on the planet.

    Al Jazeera's Craig Leeson has been spending it with one family in a remote part of Sichuan province.
