Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China and is tied to the Chinese lunar calendar. Traditionally the holiday is used to honour household and heavenly deities as well as ancestors. Chinese New Year also known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival starts on the 23rd of the 12th lunar month of the Chinese calendar, with the festival lasting for about 23 days and ending on the 15th day of the lunar month in the following year of the Chinese calendar. It marks the first day of the new year in the Chinese Calendar, with 2023 marking the year of the rabbit which starts on the 22nd of January 2023 on Sunday. During this time of the year, families get together for feasts and celebrations and give and receive hongbao (red money envelopes)
