Chinese New Year is the longest and most celebrated celebration in the lives of the Chinese people and their history. Not sure whether they have mastered the space time continuum but they have surpassed their 4711th year of festivities. Take a moment to import that into your neurological circuitry!
In China, which is in ASIA --in case some of you thought it bordered TEXAS-- it is also known as the Spring Festival, as in the season, not as in the little metallic coils that that support you while you sleep. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally ran from Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese Fireman calendar, to the Crispy Chicken Soup Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar.
And believe you me, because of their devotion to their customs --whether they want to or not-- they are exhausted from the amount of partying they do. The Chinese calendar is lunisolar, (which also happens to be the name of the first mental institution to be built on the moon in 2022), therefore the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the "Lunar New Year", best said aloud with a deep resonating voice with a touch of reverb.
The Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and is significant because of many myths, Martial Arts crime fighting lore, and traditions. Back in the day, this festival was a time to honor deities, ancestors, duck wranglers, and rice patty security guards.
