February 11th: New Year’s Eve (除夕 / chúxì)
Lunar date: December 30th
The New Year’s Eve or the 30th of the year is widely known as the day of the primary meal of the year or the annual Reunion Dinner. It is somewhat comparable to the Thanksgiving Dinner in western culture. After dinner, families stay awake till midnight to welcome the new year together.

On various days, she created animals, and on the seventh day, she created people. Chinese people believe that if Renri descends on a sunny day, it will herald a prosperous new year, good fortune, and harmony. Giving birth on this day was a wonderful and joyous occasion for a lady.





January 29th: Day of the Millet (谷日节 / gǔ rì jié)
Lunar date: January 8th
At places where stores didn’t open after the first three days of celebration, they would start resuming business on this day onwards. Grain, being highly valued in Chinese society for ages, some would host lunch or dinners while others make an effort to enrich their knowledge of agriculture by visiting rural areas.





January 30th: Providence Health (天公生 / tiān gōng shēng)
Lunar date: January 9th
The sovereign ruler – Jade Emperor is said to have been born on this day. So, all activities revolve around worshipping the highest God of the Universe. For Hokkien people, the day is even more significant than the day of the Chinese New Year itself.





February 5th: Lantern Festival (元宵节 / yuán xiāo jié)
Lunar date: January 15th
The Lantern Festival, or the “Shangyuan Festival” or Yuan Xiao Festival, sees people hitting the streets with their lanterns as thousands of floating lanterns would gradually festoon the evening sky, filling it with brightness and bringing happiness in the hearts of the people. Being a full moon day, moon-gazing while flying your lanterns makes for a more awesome end to the festival. Desserts of glutinous rice balls called yuan xiao (same as the festival) are enjoyed on the day Chinese New Year 2023.





How do people celebrate Chinese New Year 2023 ?





During this course of the Chinese New Year celebration, mainland China enjoys a week-long holiday known as the Golden Week. Holidays in the Philippines, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and others observe one to three days of holiday during Chinese New Year.





From bylanes to home interiors, every corner gives it away. From the iconic red decorations to massive parades, from homecoming to lighting of lanterns, here’s how the Chinese carry out the exuberant celebrations during their New Year, a festival with over 3,000 years of history.





Chinese New Year 2023 decorations





Families perform spring cleaning around the house and get busy adorning the space with festive decorations. Red is the dominating color during the festival as it is considered to be auspicious. So, you’d find red lanterns and posters in every shop and household.





Red Spring Festival couplets are pasted at entrances as a sign of good luck in the coming year. You’d also find ‘Fu’ character pictures and red window paper-cuts amidst the decorations as a sign of prosperity. 2023, being the year of the Rabbit, many decorations would also feature the animal sign.





Family reunion dinner on Chinese New Year 2023





Homecoming is primary in the celebration of Chinese New Year as families gather for the annual sumptuous reunion dinner on New Year’s Eve. Most feasts would also include a communal hot pot which signifies the coming together of the family for the dinner. Fish is a staple; however, it will not polish off as people go by the belief ‘let there be surplus every year’ (“surplus” and “fish” sound the same in Chinese). Dumplings and rice cakes are also indispensable for most people.





Firecrackers color the sky towards the end of the day to welcome the New Year and do away with all things old and evil. In Mainland China and many places where the Chinese diaspora congregates, the night will be spent watching CCTV’s New Year’s Gala, arguably the most-watched show in the world, bringing celebrations to home with a live broadcast of musical and dance performances.





Gifts and red envelopes Chinese New Year 2023





Chinese New Year is also the time of gift exchanging, and red envelopes gifted during this time of the year are said to herald good luck. As generations progressed, people welcomed newer ways of exchanging wishes and gifts. One common practice these days is to send digital red envelopes.





The children would also be gifted ‘luck’ money by the elders, wrapped in red packets, which they can later spend on toys, clothes, snacks, or even save up for future educational needs.





Chinese New Year 2023









What is considered unlucky during Chinese New Year 2023?





Even in a world dominated by science and technology, people resort to beliefs of their own, and it is only humane to be respectful towards these superstitions even if you don’t indulge in one. Chinese New Year, too, is the time of several such traditional beliefs, both auspicious and ill-fated ones, as the beginning of the year is considered to affect the rest of the year. Here are a few that you should keep in mind:






  • gifts and money are exchanged as a ‘good luck’ wish




  • on the day of the Spring Festival, you shouldn’t clean your house as the act is said to sweep away all the good fortune that the New Year brings with it




  • on the fourth day or the day of the sheep, it is forbidden to slaughter sheep for meat




  • fair weather on the Day of millet means you’d be blessed with a wholesome harvest in the next season




  • in Chinese, Lanterns (tiān dēng) sound similar to ‘adding children’ (tiān dīng). So, many families light lanterns with the hope of bringing a new member into the family




  • amongst food items, fish is considered lucky for New Year’s Eve, and so is the lighting of fireworks and firecrackers





How to greet Happy New Year to your Chinese friends?
In Mandarin, you can say gong xi fa cai (恭喜发财) or wishing you a prosperous New Year. Alternatively, you can simply say xin nian kuai le (新年快乐), meaning “happy new year”.
