Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year also known as the Spring Festival in modern China is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. Celebrations traditionally run from the evening preceding the first day, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first calendar month. The first day of the Chinese New Year falls on the new moon between 21 Jan and 20 Feb. In 2018 (Gregorian), the first day of the Chinese New Year is on Friday, 16 February(again, Gregorian), initiating the year of the Dog.

Although the Chinese calendar traditionally does not use continuously numbered years, outside China its years are sometimes numbered from the purported reign of the mythical Yellow Emperor in the 3rd millennium BCE. But at least three different years numbered 1 are now used by various scholars, making the year beginning in CE 2018 the "Chinese year" 4715, 4716, or 4655.

It is one of the world's most prominent and celebrated festivals. It is a major holiday in China and has had strong influence on the lunar new year celebrations of its geographic neighbors, including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mauritius, and the Philippines as well as a number of countries with large Chinese populations.
