  Traditional Chinese holidays follow the
Lunar Calendar
It’s a lunisolar calendar, actually. This calendar is quite different from the widely used Western (Gregorian) calendar. Each month in the traditional Chinese calendar begins on the new moon. And each year is determined by Earth’s revolution around the sun and has either 12 or 13 months. This is why the Chinese New Year—usually the second new moon after the winter solstice—and other Chinese holidays fall on different days of the Western calendar each year.
In 2019, the Year of the Earth Pig begins on Feb. 5.
From all of us at Shen Yun to you, Happy Chinese New Year!
