In Chinese culture and in East Asian countries, the festival is commonly referred to as the Spring Festival, as the spring season in the lunisolar calendar traditionally starts with “lichun”, the first of the 24 solar terms which the festival celebrates around the time of the Lunar New Year.

This year, 2021, is the Year of the Ox.
