This Chinese New Year, also as known as the Spring Festival, falls on Monday, February 8th, 2016. The date for every year changes depending on the lunar calendar and usually varies from mid-January to early February and is a world-wide celebration for a sixth of the globe!
On Chinese New Year day in China and in Chinatowns all over, dancing lions and dragons, loud fire-cracker noises, beating drums and clashing cymbals parade up and down city blocks to scare away evil spirits and bring health and good fortune to store-fronts and households. Traditionally, the drawing of loud noises were intended to scare away ‘Nian’, a folk monster that would invade and eat livestock and children. Because of this folk tale, the Chinese would refer to the new year as “Guo Nian,” meaning the passing of the year. So the celebration is to commemorate the past year and the start of a new one with close family and friends–it is a time for family reunions and the building of close relationships.
2016 is the start of a new zodiac animal and this year, it is the Monkey’s time to reign. Predictions of personal health, wealth and lifestyles are told to be reflected in individuals’ zodiac sign and how it coincides with the current zodiac animal.
The Chinese New Year/Cultural Festival Parade in New York City will start on the first lunar day, February 8th at 11:00 AM and end with a Firecracker Ceremony at noon.
Gong Hay Fat Choi, in Chinese means, best wishes and a prosperous new year to all!
Harvest International wishes everyone a Happy Spring Festival from our family to yours!
