The Chinese Lunar New Year, Spring Festival, or Chunjie in Chinese (春节) is a significant traditional celebration marking the start of the lunar year. The festival follows the lunar calendar, distinguishing it from the Gregorian calendar.
In Chinese mythology, the zodiac animals were chosen through a race organized by the Jade Emperor, involving crossing a challenging river. The 12-year zodiac cycle includes Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig, each linked to one of the five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water.
Preparations for the Lunar New Year start early as families clean and decorate homes, symbolizing the removal of bad luck and welcoming good fortune. Red, believed to bring luck and ward off evil, dominates the festival.
Celebrated not only in China but also across East Asia and among global Chinese communities, the Lunar New Year is a time for joy, family, and anticipation of prosperity.
