The Chinese New Year will be celebrated on February 16, 2018 and marks the beginning of a new lunar according to the traditional Chinese calendar rather than the Gregorian calendar.

The annual Chinese holiday is known as the Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival. Each year is represented by a zodiac animal on the lunar-solar Chinese calendar.  2017 was the Year of the Rooster, and 2018  welcomes  the Year of the Dog. The Spring Festival in China is celebrated for several months as a time to gather with family and hope for good fortune in the upcoming year.
