The government will declare a three-day holiday to be a seven-day holiday instead. However, citizens are required to work during the following weekend. Exact schedules are released late in the year and might change during the year.
The first day of the New Year falls on the new moon between January 21 and February 20. Chinese New Year is one of the world’s most celebrated festivals and involves the largest annual mass human migration worldwide.
It is a worldwide celebration, especially in countries with significant Chinese populations, such as Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, Philippines and many countries in North America and Europe as well.
It’s common to see that windows and doors are decorated with red color paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of happiness, wealth and good fortune.
In addition to red envelopes, which are usually given from older people to younger people, small gifts (usually food or sweets) are also exchanged between friends or relatives.
