Why Do People Celebrate Chinese New Year

Cultural Heritage

Chinese New Year is a time-honoured tradition that has been celebrated for centuries, reflecting the rich cultural heritage of the Chinese people. It is deeply ingrained in Chinese culture and is celebrated by Chinese communities worldwide as a way to preserve and pass down cultural traditions to future generations.

Family Reunion

Chinese New Year is the most important holiday for family reunions in Chinese culture. It is a time when family members gather from near and far to celebrate together, strengthen familial bonds, and reconnect with loved ones.

Renewal and Fresh Beginnings

Chinese New Year marks the beginning of a new lunar year, symbolising renewal, rejuvenation, and fresh beginnings. It is a time to bid farewell to the past year’s challenges and welcome the opportunities and blessings of the new year with hope and optimism.

Renewal and Fresh Beginnings​

Warding Off Evil Spirits

Many of the customs and traditions associated with Chinese New Year are believed to ward off evil spirits, bad luck, and misfortune. Activities such as setting off fireworks, hanging red decorations, and performing rituals are thought to bring good luck and prosperity for the coming year.

Warding Off Evil Spirits​

Honouring Ancestors

Chinese New Year is also a time to honour ancestors and pay respects to deceased family members. Offerings are made at ancestral altars, and rituals are performed to seek blessings and guidance from ancestors for the new year.

Community and Unity

Chinese New Year fosters a sense of community and unity among Chinese people, both within their own families and among larger Chinese communities worldwide. It is a time for sharing joy, spreading goodwill, and coming together in celebration.

The Chinese Zodiac

The Chinese Zodiac, also known as Shengxiao, is a cycle of twelve animal signs that are used to represent years in the lunar calendar. Each animal is associated with certain personality traits and characteristics. The twelve Chinese Zodiac signs, in order, are:

TRat: Intelligent, adaptable, and resourceful.

  1. Ox (or Buffalo): Diligent, dependable, and methodical.
  2. Tiger: Brave, competitive, and confident.
  3. Rabbit (or Hare): Gentle, compassionate, and cautious.
  4. Dragon: Ambitious, passionate, and charismatic.
  5. Snake: Intuitive, wise, and mysterious.
  6. Horse: Adventurous, energetic, and sociable.
  7. Goat (or Sheep): Creative, gentle, and compassionate.
  8. Monkey: Clever, playful, and resourceful.
  9. Rooster (or Chicken): Honest, hardworking, and confident.
  10. Dog: Loyal, faithful, and protective.
  11. Pig (or Boar): Generous, honest, and easygoing.


Each Chinese Zodiac sign is also associated with one of the five elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water) which further influences the personality traits and characteristics of individuals born under that sign. The Chinese Zodiac follows a twelve-year cycle, with each year being associated with a specific animal sign.
