Happy Chinese New Year

February 7, 2008 marks the Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year. It is the most important of all the traditional Chinese holidays.

The start of the Chinese New Year is the first day of the New Year containing a new moon. This means that the day varies in each year of the Gregorian calendar.
