Today is the start of the Chinese New Year; it is also known as the Lunar New Year because the Chinese months are separated by the lunar calendar. Usually the celebrations last for 15 days and are celebrated by families all around China and the world. Each year is notated with a different Animal symbol. This year is the year of the Monkey. Even though today is the first day of the Chinese New Year celebrations, there will be more celebrations as the next 15 days go by.
