2016 Chinese New Year Spring Festival Calendar

“Gong hey fat choy!” You’ll soon be hearing this greeting on the streets of your city as the 8th of February marks the beginning of the year of the Monkey which is also the start of the 2016 Chinese New Year Calendar, a celebration that is synonymous with lots of delicious foods, family gatherings, parades and red envelopes among other promising cultural activities.

Also known as the Spring Festival (although it falls in the middle of winter), the Chinese New Year has more than 4,000 years of history and is the grandest and most important annual event for Chinese people. This festival lasts for 15 whole days and is not celebrated in China alone but also in Taiwan, Philippines, Indonesia and China-towns in the U.S, Canada, Australia and U.K – roughly a sixth of the world will celebrate it. Needless to say, most employees and students enjoy the longest public holiday during this festival with most employees being given 7 days off and some students taking even a whole month of absence.
