After China celebrates New Year with the rest of the world on Jan. 1, it will also be gearing for the Chinese New Year 2018, which begins on Feb. 16. According to the nation’s traditional lunar calendar, 2018 marks the Year of the Dog.
The Chinese New Year is observed as a national holiday, often known by different names such as the Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival. It is an occasion for people to gather together and pray for good health and a prosperous life for the year ahead.
Chinese cultural celebrations like lion and dragon dances, parades, live music, firecrackers, the lighting of the Chinese lanterns and indulging in seafood are some of the things done to commemorate the beginning of the Chinese New Year.
