Chinese New Year 2011 is falling on February 3. The Chinese New Year is celebrated as the symbol of spring’s celebration. In fact, in China it is still called the Spring festival. It is celebrated after the fall harvest and before the spring planting season. The date of the Chinese New Year is always changing and usually dependant on the Chinese calendar invented by Emperor Huangdi in the year 2637 B.C.E. The Chinese calendar is a combined solar/lunar calendar that tells Chinese people what holidays are coming, what animal they act like, and what days they off from work.
In order to plan ahead, here are the already determined future dates in case you need to order balloons or a chinese cake in advance.
