Like the Western calendar, The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a yearly one, with the start of the lunar year being based on the cycles of the moon. Therefore, because of this cyclical dating, the beginning of the year can fall anywhere between late January and the middle of February. This year it falls on February 12th. A complete cycle takes 60 years and is made up of five cycles of 12 years each. The Chinese Lunar Calendar names each of the twelve years after an animal. Legend has it that the Lord Buddha summoned all the animals to come to him before he departed from earth. Only twelve came to bid him farewell and as a reward he named a year after each one in the order they arrived. The Chinese believe the animal ruling the year in which a person is born has a profound influence on personality, saying: "This is the animal that hides in your heart.

The Legendary "Chinese New Year Traditions" of the original Chinese New Year has been proported to have it's origin in ancient times when Buddha asked animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Twelve animals came and Buddha named a year after each one of them. He then pronounced that the people born in a specific animal year would have some of that animals personality characteristics. Those born in the rat's years tend to be leaders, pioneers, and conquerors. They are charming, passionate, charismatic, practical and hardworking. 2008 is designated as the "Year of the Rat" and such notables as Ben Affleck, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, William Shakespeare and Mozart were all born in the year of the Rat.

    CHINESE NEW YEAR PREPARATION & CELEBRATION
    Transliterated by: "Michael AngelOh"
    transport back to happy chinese new year lunar calendar history and traditions navigation directory HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR LUNAR CALENDAR CELEBRATION

    "Chinese New Year Preparation for Celebration", includes vigorous House cleaning which should be complete on or before the day Chinese New Years Eve. Early in the morning, someone will go to the flower-market to buy flowers for worship events and New Year Day decoration. Red is the auspicious color in China and the Pink Peach Flower and Japanese Sakura are very popular choices for the flower arrangement. The first event on Chinese New Year's Eve is to worship the Jade Emperor with flower and fruit (without animal sacrifices as the top ranking gods are vegetarian) in order to br thankful for the gracious protection from the God of Heaven during the past year and pray for a safe, smooth and fortunate coming year.

    Many families work on the final house decoration up to the last minute as they need to finish the decoration on all doors and windows. Chinese calligraphers write the New Year's poetry on the red color paper and people paste them on the top and both sides of main-entry door. This custom comes from the story of the man-eater Nian animal, which was afraid of red so people drew The God of the Door images on the red-color peach tree wood hanging on the door to scare the devil spirit away. Later, this custom evolved into the use of red colored paper instead. This custom can also include the writing of a single character on the diamond-shape red paper which is then pasted on the doors, windows, containers, posts, storages and money safety boxes. The popular characters are Spring, Luck, Full, Money, Happiness, Wealth, Safety or Prosperity. Some are posted upside down, because the sound of upside-down in Chinese is similar to the word "come" so the upside-down Money poster means money comes. The upside-down Luck poster means that luck comes.

    In the afternoon around 2 or 3 pm the Chinese customarily say good-bye to the current year by telling the gods and ancestors at the family Buddhist altar with Nian-Gao (sweet rice cake), Fa-Gao (steamed rice cake), animal sacrifices (pork, duck, chicken or fish), fruit, drink, candy with big red candles. In ancient times family members put a hundred coins tied with red thread to hope for good money luck and wish for longevity to be 100 years old. Today, people put as much cash as they can afford.

    After saying goodbye to gods and ancestors, women begin to prepare for the reunion dinner with the main dish sitting at the center of the table which is known as the Hot-Pot. The traditional Hot-Pot is a big metal bowel with a hollow tube at the center. The Chinese put a hot bone soup in the bowel and cook different kinds of sliced meat, seafood, vegetable, meat balls and seafood balls during the dinner. They put a hot-rock or hot-coal inside the hollow tube to keep food warm so they can eat and enjoy the reunion dinner for many hours. There are many dishes on the dinner table and each dish has an auspicious meaning behind it which may include a connection to longevity, reunion, perfection, good luck, health, diligence, satisfaction or promotion based on the meaning of the dish's name. Family members are invited to eat something from every dish so they can eat and chat and share their Love and Care for one another during this time. Chinese customarily don't touch fish portions left on the table because the meaning of fish is considered to be "that which remains", meaning there will be surplus or extra savings at the end of the New Year.

    After dinner, the children wait for New Year's Hong Bao, which is a Red Envelope containing brand-new money. Adults or parents will hand out the Red Envelopes to children, unmarried immediate family members and their parents before going to bed. Children will put their Red Envelopes under their pillow when sleeping which ensures good sleep without bad dreams portending good fortune for the coming New Year. The families expenses increase sharply during the Chinese New Year period and customarily receive a year-end bonus which amounts to about one or two month salary. This bonus allows the family to afford better food, clothing and decoration for the Chinese New Year celebration. Some Banks will prepare many brand new bills for people to exchange as the lucky money placed in Red Envelope is to be brand-new money.

    The final event in Chinese New Year preparation is the vigil or wait for the New Year's coming. This includes staying awake till New Year arrives. The sound of Sleepiness in Chinese belief is similar to Trouble so staying awake can insure no trouble for the coming year. The Chinese usually keep themselves awake by watching TV shows and Chinese New Year specials. They have also been known to gamble by playing Mah-Jong. It requires skill, memorization, calculation, strategy and and luck to win money. Usually, Mah-Jong can be played all night long, because the loser wouldn't quit.

    Many people will gather outside the temple after the reunion dinner, because they wish to be the first person of the year to be blessed by the God. There is the first incense stick race at many temples every year. On the first second of Rat hour, at 11 pm, as soon as the temple's main gate is opened people will dash into the temple to place their incense stick into the incense container. The winner will win a big Red-Envelope from the temple and will be very lucky in the coming year. After receiving their Red Envelopes, young people like to go outside for the vigil of the coming year. Before midnight, they gather with friends or relatives around a park, riverside or tall buildings to wait for the Chinese New Year fireworks.

    The Chinese New Year is customarily a family celebration and would'nt be complete without the famous "Chinese New Year Dragon, Parade and Lantern Festival". Family members gather at one anothers homes to visit and share meals, with the most important being the New Year's Eve feast. Today, in the United States, many Chinese immigrants arrive without families, and usually celebrate with Chinese-American community neighborhood associations which host banquets and special Chinese New Year events.

    The "Chinese Lantern Festival" is such an event which is held on the 15th day of the first lunar month. Chinese Lanterns are usually works of art, painted with various animals, flowers, birds, zodiac signs, and scenes from legendary Chinese history. People carry their glowing lanterns to evening parades held under the light of the full moon or place them in Temples.

    Many Chinese New Year Lantern Festival celebrations conclude with the "Chinese Dragon Dance" which can stretch in size to a hundred feet or more. Such dragons are typically made of silk, paper, and bamboo materials. Traditionally the "Chinese New Year Dragon" is guided by young men who dance their way through the streets of the "Chinese New Year Parade". In the United States, the Chinese New Years Lantern Festival Dragon Dance is usually celebrated on a weekend and many Chinese-American communities have incorporated marching bands and floats in their current day celebrations.
