Chinese New Year, Lunar New Year or Spring Festival is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is often inaccurately called "Lunar New Year", because - as part of the lunisolar Chinese calendar - the date is partially determined based on lunar phase.

The festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first month in the Chinese calendar and ends with Lantern Festival which is on the 15th day. Chinese New Year's Eve, a day when Chinese families gather for their annual reunion dinner.
