Chinese New Year, New Year of the Chinese calendar or Lunar New Year (traditional sinograms: 農曆 新年; simplified sinograms: 农历 新年; hanyu pinyin: nónglì xīnnián) or "passage of the year" (traditional: 過年; simplified: 过年; pinyin: guònián) is the first day of the first month of the Chinese calendar. It's the beginning of the spring festival (traditional: 春節, simplified: 春节; pinyin: chūnjié) that takes place over a fortnight and ends with the lantern festival (traditional: 元宵節; simplified: 元宵节; pinyin : yuánxiāojié).

Since the Chinese calendar is a luni-solar calendar, the Chinese New Year date in the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year, but still falls between January 21st and February 19th, during the second new moon since Winter solstice when the sun is in the sign of the Aquarius. It is, like all the beginnings of Chinese lunar months, the first day of a new moon. By convention, the astronomical alignment that signals the new moon is determined at the observatory of the Purple Mountain in Nanjing. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
