Hop, Hop, Hooray on 2023
Gong Xi Fa Cai, folks! Chinese New Year 2023, which specifically falls on January 22, is also known as the Lunar New Year or Chinese Spring Festival.
Considered as an important event around the world with colorful and vibrant decorations, dragon parades, folk traditions, and a magical feast, Chinese New Year is a movable holiday, which means the date varies each year and is determined by the lunar calendar. However, the time frame is generally typically between January 21 and February 20.
Each New Year is accompanied by an animal, which rotates and repeats according to a predetermined cycle. The annual celebrations usually last for 15 days, marking it as the longest holiday in the Chinese calendar.
Here in the Philippines, a large population of Chinese and even Pinoys welcome the festivities with sumptuous reunion dinners, ringing of bells, watching traditional lion dances and fireworks.
