Lunar New Year is one of the most important Chinese holidays that starts on New Year’s Eve (January 31st) and lasts until February 15th. Based on the Chinese Lunisolar calendar, this celebration marks the beginning of the new year!
Lunar New Year ends with a lantern festival marking the first full moon and symbolizing “reconciliation, peace, and forgiveness.” People honor this holiday by decorating, having family dinners, watching lion and dragon dances, and attending traditional festivals in parks or temples.
