The Lunar New Year is a celebration, which starts with the first new moon of the lunisolar calendar and continues until the first full moon. For many Asian cultures, Lunar New Year is a celebration of change, a moment to renew oneself and a time to welcome in the coming year with family and friends. This year’s celebration will start on Sunday, January 22.
