Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, otherwise known as Lunar New Year and Spring Festival is a time of year for families to get together and celebrate the new year. This year it is celebrated on February 7–13, 2016 and is the year of the monkey. The holiday is also celebrated in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Tibet, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. The United States, Australia, and Canada have large Chinese populations; thus, celebrations as well.
