Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year’s Day is the first day of the Chinese lunar calendar. But the date is different each year on the Gregorian (internationally-used) calendar, falling anytime between January 21th and February 20th. It is sometimes called Lunar New Year because traditional Chinese months are governed by a lunar calendar, with each month beginning with a new moon. New Year festivities traditionally start on the first day of the month and continue until the fifteenth, when the moon is brightest. In China, people may take weeks of holiday from work to prepare for and celebrate the New Year.
