The Lunar New Year, aka Spring Festival or Chinese Lunar New Year, is based on the Chinese lunar calendar. This year, the Lunar New Year falls on February 10, 2024, the day of the second new moon. Celebrations for the Lunar New Year will continue for approximately 15 days.
The Chinese zodiac assigns each year to one of 12 animals. This year it will be the Year of the Dragon which is believed to represent strength, health and good fortune. People born in the Year of the Dragon are believed to be charismatic, enthusiastic and strong leaders.
