Time Dated back to 4000 years ago
  • Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is the most
    important of the traditional Chinese holidays. It
    is sometimes called the Lunar New Year,
    especially by people outside China. The festival
    traditionally begins on the first day of the
    first lunar month (Chinese ?? pinyin zheng
    yuè) in the Chinese calendar and ends on the
    15th this day is called Lantern Festival.
    Chinese New Year's Eve is known as Chúxi (??,
    chúxi,). It literally means "Year-pass Eve".
  • Usually, its 15 days long

Places
  • Celebrated in areas with large populations of
    ethnic Chinese, Chinese New Year is considered a
    major holiday for the Chinese and has had
    influence on the new year celebrations of its
    geographic neighbours, as well as cultures with
    whom the Chinese have had extensive interaction.
    These include Aboriginal Taiwanese people,
    Koreans, Mongolians, Nepalese, Bhutanese,
    Vietnamese, and formerly the Japanese before
    1873. In Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the
    Philippines, Thailand, and other countries with
    significant Chinese populations, Chinese New Year
    is also celebrated, largely by overseas Chinese,
    and has, to varying degrees, become part of the
    traditional culture of these countries. In
    Canada, although Chinese New Year is not an
    official holiday, many ethnic Chinese hold large
    celebrations and Canada Post issues New Year's
    themed stamps in domestic and international rates.
