CHINESE NEW YEAR 2012

Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. In China, it is known as “Spring Festival,” the literal translation of the Chinese name Chūn Jié, since the spring season in Chinese calendar starts with lichun, the first solar term in a Chinese calendar year. It marks the end of the winter season, analogous to the Western carnival. The festival begins on the first day of the first month in the traditional Chinese calendar and ends with Lantern Festival which is on the 15th day. Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the “Lunar New Year”. The Dragon is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac.
