Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year is particularly celebrated in East Asia, influenced by the Chinese New Year and the Chinese calendar. It signifies the beginning of a calendar year whose months are moon cycles, based on the lunar calendar in China, South Korea and Vietnam, which are regulated by the cycles of the moon and sun.


During Chinese New Year celebrations, specific food holds symbolic meanings, for example, pork symbolises strength, wealth and abundant blessing.
