The Chinese follow a lunisolar calendar, so the New Year date keeps changing every year. Their New Year is also known as the Spring Festival. This time the Chinese New Year begins on the Feb 8, 2016. The Chinese Zodiac comprises of 12 animals; rat, horse, snake, monkey etc, to name a few. Each New Year is named after one of these animals. This time it’s the Year of the Monkey. The Year of the Monkey would next appear in 2028! The celebrations begin from New Year’s Eve and go on for 15 days. The 15th day is the Lantern Festival which is the traditional end of the Spring Festival celebrations. People send aloft glowing lanterns into the sky, rivers, lakes and streams.
