Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, is a significant traditional Chinese festival                                                                                                    


Date: Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar, and its date varies each year. It usually falls between January 21 and February 20.

Zodiac Animals: Each year in the Chinese zodiac is associated with one of the twelve animal signs. These signs follow a twelve-year cycle, and each year is also linked to one of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water). 2022, for example, is the Year of the Tiger.

Family Reunion: Chinese New Year is a time for family reunions. Many people travel long distances to be with their families and celebrate together. The eve of Chinese New Year, known as "Chuxi," is often marked by a grand family dinner.

Spring Cleaning: Before the festival, it is customary to thoroughly clean homes to sweep away bad luck and make way for good fortune in the coming year.

Red Decorations: The color red is associated with good luck and happiness in Chinese culture. Homes and streets are adorned with red decorations, including lanterns, banners, and symbolic images.
