What is Chinese New Year?

Chinese New Year

In the old days of China, the emergence of the new moon in the period betwixt the 21st of January and the 20th of February marked the inception of the Chinese New Year. Nowadays, however, the Chinese New Year is colloquially denoted as the Spring Festival. According to Chinese traditions, the ceremony starts on the night prior to the beginning of the Chinese New Year and lasts until the 15th day of the year, where the Lantern Festival is celebrated.
