Lunar New Year which is also known as the Spring Festival is one of the most important festivals for the Chinese and the most celebrated one.

Chinese New Year starts with the New Moon on the first day of the new year and ends on the full moon 15 days later. Or simply the first day to the fifteenth day of the Chinese calendar or lunisolar calendar - (The traditional concept arose with the cycle of moon phases)

The Chinese New Year celebration starts on the eve of the first day of new year which is commonly known as 除夕 (meaning to get rid of which is the name of a legendary man-eating beast that preys once a year on New Year Eve. When arrived, people use firecrackers to scare it away. People then joined together to celebrate for another year of safe life).
