In modern China, Spring Festival is the celebration of Chinese New Year. It is the most important holiday of the year – a time for family to come together in the tradition of honoring gods and ancestors. Spring Festival is typically celebrated from New Year’s Eve (in the lunar calendar) to the 15th day of the first month of the New Year.
