Do you know about Chinese New Year ??

 

As they follow the lunar calendar, Feb 5th is actually their new year.

 

This is similar to the New Year’s holiday in Japan. It will be held especially in China, South Korea, North Korea, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Mongolia any other Asian nations…

 

This holiday happens during a long period of time rather than a day called, ‘Lunar New Year’.

The atmosphere of the towns completely change which are decorated with red lanterns from middle of January to the middle of February.

The mood is celebratory and many festivals are held at various places.

 

February 4th is similar to the west’s New Year’s Eve, so please be careful as there are many days off !!
