Traditionally, Chinese New Year is celebrated according to the lunar calendar. Till this day, most Chinese people feel that the new year really begins only after the lunar New Year. Chinese people only started integrating the western calendar year a little over a century ago, recognizing January 1 as the start of the New Year. This is because when the Republic of China was founded, China began to use the Gregorian calendar, and “New Year’s Day” literally means “the day of the beginning” in Chinese.
