What is Chinese New Year?

Chinese New Year or also known as Spring Festival, is celebrated mostly in Asian countries. Chinese New Year is part of the Lunar New Year, and this is marked as well by other nearby countries such as North Korea, South Korea, and Vietnam. These places follow the lunar calendar over the past decades; however, through time, they were converted to use the gregorian calendar as well, which is the commonly used days and month pattern basis. Though despite the conversion, a culture will remain and is hard to be erased in a system of a society, making them celebrate the Lunar New year as well.

If you will ask the difference between the two, Gregorian Calendar falls on a specific date, and the circulation of days was also fixed, while if you will use the lunar calendar, the days will depend on the appearance of the moon. Usually, the Chinese New year is celebrated between the dates of January 21 to February 20.

This 2020, The Chinese New Year falls on the date of January 25.
