Lunar New Year marks the start of a new year in the Chinese lunisolar calendar and is celebrated throughout Asia and in Asian communities worldwide.
In China, Lunar New Year celebrations start on the night before the first day of the new year and lasts for 15 days.
This year in 2021, Lunar New Year starts on February 12 and we ring in the Year of the Ox, one of 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac.
Those born in the Year of the Ox are said to be a natural leader who is bright, patient, and cheerful.
Lunar New Year is celebrated by light of fireworks, lanterns, and candles. Man-made paper lanterns also are hung by the hundreds to bring in good luck to the new year.
There are dragon dances, performances, and parades with music and acrobatics. In many Chinese families, there are gatherings and lots of delicious food! The festivities continue for 15 days, finishing with a lantern festival, which indicates the end of the new year celebration period.
This year, we have a few cute or kawaii stationery items that will help to get you, your bullet journal or planner and your home to get ready for a lucky and prosperous new year in a fun way!
Every day for 15 days around the new year you'll open up an item that will pay tribute to a different Lunar New Year tradition or ritual and learn a little bit about the history and meaning behind the tradition.
