Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year’s Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar.
Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the “Lunar New Year”. Lunar New Year refers to the first day of a secular, sacred or other year whose months are coordinated the cycles of the moon.
Other cultures also celebrate Lunar New Year, including Korean, Mongolian, Tibetan, Vietnamese, and Japanese (before 1873).
