While the entire world erupts into joy after welcoming the new year on January 1, another set of celebrations is anticipated by people from various parts across the world. These celebrations pertain to the Lunar New Year, also known as the Chinese New Year or Spring Festival that falls after the new year celebrations.
Primarily celebrated among the Chinese community, the festival is celebrated at the rise of the second moon after the winter solstice. As the date of the festival depends on the cycles of the moon, the Lunar New Year does not fall on the same date every year. Generally, it is noted that the festival falls anywhere between January 20 to February 21 as per the Gregorian calendar.
