We’ve got our eye on the Tiger this Lunar New Year.

The holiday that’s celebrated by almost two billion people across the world, also known as Chinese New Year and Spring Festival, is upon us!

The reason Chinese New Year falls a few weeks after the start of the new calendar year, is because it marks the Lunar New Year, when there is a new moon.

Chinese New Year 2022 falls on Tuesday, February 1st, 2022, and celebrations culminate with the Lantern Festival on February 15th, 2022.

How Long is Chinese New Year? 16 Days
Celebrations last up to 16 days, but only the first 7 days are considered a public holiday (January 31st–February 6th, 2022).

What is the 2022 Chinese Zodiac? Tiger
Chinese New Year marks the transition between zodiac signs: 2022 is the year of the Tiger; 2021 the year of the Ox.
