We already passed the first month of 2016. So let’s celebrate New Year!
The Chinese New Year starts February 8th on our Gregorian calendar.
Time to celebrate. Time to get huge discounts.
But.. It’s not the time to get in contact with China, they are all on holiday.
Chinese New Years differs every year
From our point of view, the date for Chinese New Year differs every year. This is because the Chinese calendar follows the moon cycle. The Chinese New Year starts at the day from the second (sometimes third) new moon after mid winter night.
In 2016 the official celebration takes place from February 7th – 13th. Most people have 7 days off from their work. So if you need to contact them about your orders or products, do not expect an answer during this time.
The most important days are:
- Chinese New Year’s Eve (February 7, 2016; 除夕 Chúxī /choo-sshee/ ‘Excluded Evening’ on the Chinese calendar): the day of family reunions
- Chinese New Year’s Day (February 8, 2016; 初一 Chūyī /choo-ee/ ‘First One’ on the Chinese calendar): the day of (close) family visits and New Year greetings
