CITY IMAGES proudly joins our contributors and millions of men, women, and children throughout the world as we celebrate the Year of The Rooster a two-week-long celebration beginning with the first new moon of the lunar calendar and ending 15 days later on the first full moon.

Traditionally, the festival is a time to honor deities as well as ancestors. Chinese New Year is celebrated in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations, including Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritius, and the Philippines.

This holiday, which is also known as the Spring Festival, is the most important social and economic festival of the year. The festival follows a lunisolar calendar, which is celebrated on the first day of the first month in the Chinese calendar – the day of the second new moon after the winter solstice.
