CHINESE NEW YEAR

What is Chinese New Year?

Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is the most important holiday in the Chinese calendar.

This year Chinese New Year will begin on 12 February 2021, to mark the start of the lunar new year.

In Chinese tradition, each year is named after one of 12 animals, which feature in the Chinese zodiac: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.

2021 is the year of the Ox, the second of the 12-year cycle of animals in Chinese astrology.

How do people celebrate the festival?

In China, schools and businesses close to celebrate the new year, so that everyone can spend time with their families.

The festivities continue for two weeks, finishing with a special lantern festival, which signals the end of the New Year celebration period.
