Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is the most important festival in China. Chinese New Year starts with "Spring Commences (立春)", the first of 24 solar terms.

Chinese New Year is the most important time for a family union. During the Chinese New Year, hundreds of thousands of people working outside will return to their hometowns to meet families and friends. Most businesses will also close to celebrate the festival.

In China, the holiday normally lasts seven days, but the traditional celebration is much longer than that. The preparation starts about a week before the new year, and the festivities last about two weeks after the new year.

There are 12 Chinese zodiac signs, and each year an animal is assigned in a repeating 12-year cycle: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.

The following is the Chinese New Year's Day list from 2022 to 2033 in one 12-year cycle.
