The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.

Chinese New Year is an annual celebration marking the start of the new year according to the Chinese lunisolar calendar. Chinese New Year always falls in the months of January or February, and each Chinese new year is represented by 1 of the 12 creatures of the Chinese Zodiac. Chinese New Year is also known as the Spring Festival, and in pre-modern times it would signal to farmers in China that they must begin preparation for the sowing of their fields.

 "The Spring Festival was the product of an agrarian society.
The people who were farmers would plant in spring, harvest in autumn, relax a little in summer and rest in winter.
The seasons thus became a living cycle and the harvests were dependant on nature.Ē

(Qi Dongye and Lu Xianwen)
