Chinese New Year is the most important festival in China. It began almost 4,000 years ago and celebrates the beginning of a new year on the lunar calendar. This year, New Year’s falls on Feb 5 and begins the year of “Pig” in the Chinese Zodiac.

The “Pig” symbolizes such character traits as diligence, compassion, generosity and optimism.  Pigs enjoy life and because they are entertaining, others enjoy their company.

Some of the the traditions for Chinese New Year include fireworks; lion/dragon dance; decorating doors and windows with red signs and words to symbolize good luck and prosperity; adults gift red envelopes filled with money to children; and families have a grand feast with dumplings, fish and long noodles.
