Lunar New Year Celebration Ideas

Happy Lunar New Year Eve! Check out some of our recommendations for how to celebrate this year, locally and virtually!

Lunar New Year, also commonly known as Chinese New Year or the Spring Festival , is on February 12th. The Chinese Calendar is a lunisolar calendar, reckoning dates based on the astronomical phenomenon. This calendar is used for holiday dates in many Chinese influenced countries, like Taiwan, Korea, Thailand and more.

Lunar New Year is typically observed for 16 days, starting with New Years Eve. Originally, Lunar New Year was a time to honor deities and ancestors. Over time, it has become a time to bring together families and wish upon good fortune.
