Chinese New Year / "Spring Festival" 
is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays and lasts 15 days. It starts with lichun, the first solar term in a Chinese calendar year and marks the end of the winter season. The biggest event of any Chinese New Year's Eve is the Reunion Dinner on New Year's Eve, comparable to Christmas dinner in the West. On the 15th day the festival is finished with a
grandiose Lantern Festival and of course the Lion Dance is a Must.
