Happy Chinese New Year from Asian Tigers China!
19 Jan 2023
Chinese New Year is known as the Spring Festival or Chūnjié in Mandarin. It is the most distinctive Chinese traditional festival with a history of over 4000 years. The New Year typically begins with the first new moon that occurs between the end of January and spans the first 15 days of the first month of the lunar calendar-until the full moon arrives. In 2023, Chinese New Year begins on January 22.
Each year in the Lunar calendar is represented by one of 12 zodiac animals included in the cycle of 12 stations or “signs” along the apparent path of the sun through the cosmos. The year 2023 is slated to be the year of the rabbit.
During Chinese New Year, people have a long list of things to do. Many Chinese New Year customs are widely observed for thousands of years such as the family reunion dinner, red envelopes, pasting the “Fu” character, visiting friends and relatives, decorations with Chinese knots and window paper-cuts…
To curb the spread of the coronavirus during the holiday period, China has advocated off-peak travel and encouraged people to stay put during the holiday in the past 3 years. With the policy adjustment, we believe 2023 will usher a travel peak.
