Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is the most important festival in China. Chinese New Year starts from "Spring Commences (立春)", which is the first solar term of the 24 solar terms.
Chinese New Year is the most important time for family union. During the Chinese New Year, hundreds of thousands people who work outside will go back to their hometown to meet families and friends. Most business will also close to celebrate the festival.
In China, the holiday normally lasts 7 days, but the traditional celebration is much longer than that. The preparation starts about a week before the new year and the celebrations last till about 2 weeks after the new year.
