Lunar New Year
Tuesday February 1
Xīnnián kuàilè! The Lunar New Year marks new year celebrations for many East Asian countries. The holiday involves at least a week of preparation prior to New Year's Day, followed by two weeks of feasts, family visits, and merrymaking. Traditions often center around clearing away the previous year's bad luck and preparing home and family to receive the new year's good luck. Here's hoping the new year brings fortune and good health to us all.

This world-famous, highly anticipated holiday has been celebrated for centuries with parades, delicious food, vibrant costumes, and samba dancing. This year, Rio will be cancelling the street parties, but they will still hold their famous parade with its floats and samba dancers, which is broadcast on television nationwide.
