Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival (ChūnJié) or the Lunar New Year, is THE holiday in China. Because it is based on the Lunar calendar, unlike the Solar (Gregorian) calendar used in the U.S., there is no set date for it. The New Year ranges from 21 January to 20 February, and this year, it falls on Sunday, 22 January. Chinese New Year marks the end of the coldest days and the transition between the Chinese Zodiac signs - 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit and 2022 was the Year of the Tiger.
ChunJie brings along new beginnings, fresh starts, and a new round of planting and harvests. It is also the longest Chinese holiday - 16 days including New Year's Eve. Most people start celebrating in (lunar) December with the Laba Festival and the celebration can be as long as 40 days! Majority of businesses and stores are closed a week ahead of time to allow people to prepare for the holiday and travel home for reunions. Gifts and clothing are purchased, supplies and snacks are stocked, and trips to home are booked. Each year, the Spring Festival is the reason for the largest human migration in the world.
