The Chinese New Year is the most important and longest celebration in the Chinese calendar. Festivities to mark this occasion are also known as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, which run from February 1st to February 15th. There are twelve Chinese Zodiac animals, each of which is linked to certain characteristics and elements, and they rotate each year.
