The Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, is the beginning of the lunar calendar year.
It is celebrated by various Asian communities around the world, including China, Korea, Vietnam, and others. It typically falls between January 21 and February 20, marking the transition from the old year to the new one according to the lunar calendar.
Festivities include family gatherings, feasting, fireworks, and various cultural traditions to welcome the new year and wish for prosperity, good fortune, and happiness. Each year is associated with one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, rotating in a 12-year cycle.
