Chinese New Year, aka Spring Festival, is the most significant holiday of the year in China, as well as countries and territories with large Chinese populations, and in Chinatowns across the country. The Lunar New Year is celebrated with colorful parades, festivals, and most importantly, large family gatherings. It’s also a time to honor ancestors and to give thanks for good fortune. Sumptuous meals with “lucky” dishes, red envelopes (hongbao), and firecrackers are all traditional parts of the festivities.

Los Angeles is celebrating the Year of the Monkey with events ranging from a traditional temple ceremony to a spectacular parade, lavish buffet and great deals for shopping and hotels. Gōng xǐ fā cái!
