Chinese New Year 2016

Published: February 7, 2016

Chinese New Year 2016, Gong xi fa cai! (Or Kung hei fat choy! if you’re speaking Cantonese). Welcome, year of the fire monkey.

Like Korean Seollal?, Vietnamese Tet, Mongolian Tsagaan Sarand Tibetan Losar?, Chinese New Year farewells winter and the year gone by and rings in spring and the fresh year with family and friends. Making wishes for luck, prosperity and good fortune and warding off evil spirits are central to many celebrations, which vary across China and Lunar New Year cultures.

From the beginning of festivities on the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month to the Lantern Festival on day 15 of the new year, taboos, traditions and superstitions dominate the auspicious time. If you want to ensure you have a lucky, prosperous year, here’s a list of what to do and what not to do.
