The date of the lunar calendar is determined by the lunar calendar: the festival is the second new moon after the winter solstice on December 21. Therefore, each time the Chinese lunar calendar is between different dates in the usual solar calendar, January 21 and February 20.

Although it is winter in most parts of China, the Lunar New Year is generally called the Spring Festival in China. Because it starts with the beginning of spring (the first of twenty-four terms coordinated with the changes in nature), and it marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring.

The Spring Festival is the Lunar New Year, which represents the desire for a new life.
