The Lunar New Year Celebration is one of the most important events in China. Each New Year is marked by one of the 12 animal zodiac signs: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Based on the lunar calendar, the celebration begins with the new moon and ends on the first full moon, 15 days later. Since the cycles of the moon vary each year, the start of Lunar New Year can land between the end of January and the end of February. It’s a time to reconnect with loved ones, enjoy a delicious feast, and honor ancestors.
