history of the holiday

Lunar New Year is the most important holiday in the Chinese (lunar) calendar. It falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, between January 12 and February 19. In 2023, the Lunar New Year falls on January 22nd.

Each year in the lunar calendar is associated with a specific animal: a rat, a bull, a tiger, a hare, a dragon, a snake, a horse, a goat, a monkey, a rooster, a dog, or a pig. 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, or rather - the Water Rabbit. It is believed that this animal has a quiet and calm character, which means that the year should be like that.
