Chinese New Year Festivities. The 15-Day Celebration of Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year Festivities.
Chinese New Year is the most important festival for the Chinese.
The Eve and the first 15 days of the New Year are the most important.
It is believed that both your attitude and behaviour throughout the 15 days will have a strong impact on how your year will turn out.
Each of the 15 days has strong affinity with particular animal signs.
That means that each day has the potential to be very auspicious for one or more signs.
