Chinese New Year


February 16, 2018


The Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival as it?s been called since the 20th century, remains the most important social and economic holiday in China. Originally tied to the lunar-solar Chinese calendar, the holiday was a time to honor household and heavenly deities as well as ancestors. It was also a time to bring family together for feasting. With the popular adoption in China of the Western calendar in 1912, the Chinese joined in celebrating January 1 as New Year's Day. China, however, continues to celebrate the traditional Chinese New Year, although in a shorter version with a new name?the Spring Festival. 2018 is the Year of the Dog, for all you Chinese Restaurant placemat observers.
