Lunar New Year! (Year of the Tiger)
Lunar New Year, also called Spring Festival, is the most important holiday in China. Tied to the Chinese lunar calendar, the holiday began as a time for feasting and to honor household and heavenly deities, as well as ancestors.
With the popular adoption of the Western calendar in 1912, the Chinese joined in celebrating January 1 as New Year’s Day. China, however, continues to celebrate Lunar New Year with the traditional greeting, “Kung hei fat choi.” In 2022, Lunar New Year will begin on February 1.
The year 2022 is slated to be the Year of the water Tiger. The tiger is known as the king of all beasts in China and the zodiac is associated with strength, exorcising evils and bravery.
