Chinese New Year

A mayor holiday in China and Chinese communities throughout the world is Chinese New Year. Unlike in Western nations, where 1 January is always the first day of the new year, the starting date of the new year is not the same each year on the Chinese calendar.

Chinese New Year begins in late January or early February. The 15-day celebration begins with the new moon and lasts until the full moon. Chinese years are named after 12 different animals: the rat, the ox, the tiger, the hare, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the sheep, the monkey, the fowl, the dog and the pig.
