Happy Lunar New Year!
The Lunar New Year is celebrated this Sunday, January 22nd. In Eastern Asia, Lunar New Year begins on the date of the second new Moon after the December solstice. In practice, this means that the Lunar New Year can fall between January 21 and February 20. In the Chinese 12-year calendar cycle, 2023 is the year of the rabbit, as depicted in the ACAMAR (Australia--China Consortium for Astrophysical Research) card above. In Vietnam however, the year is celebrated as the year of the cat. In any case, Happy Lunar New Year!
