What Is the Lunar New Year?
With celebrations starting at the turn of the traditional Lunar New Year, the Chinese New Year is a festival that is centuries old with roots in several ancient myths and traditions.
Each year, an animal represents the year according to the ancient Chinese zodiac. It's also known as the Chinese New Year, and celebrations range from traditional prayers and feasts to incredible lion dances showcasing beautiful costumes. As 2017 comes to an end, 2018 marks the Year of the Dog. Following the rooster in the zodiac, this symbol is believed to represent honesty and loyalty.
