Lunar (Chinese) New Year's Day: 19 Feb 2015
Chinese New Year's Day changes each year in line with the Lunar calendar. Celebrated in many Asian cultures, all aim to start the new year right, focusing on making amends, avoiding offence & re-establishing old ties. Many buy new clothes, give gifts and clean house. Each year of the Chinese zodiac is represented by one of 12 animals. 2015 is the year of the goat. The largest celebration in the world where nearly 2 billion people enjoy a public holiday, it is also the world’s biggest mass migration: nearly 400 million people around Asia travel for holidays or to visit their family. Awesome huh!
