About Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. In China, it is known as the Spring Festival and marks the end of the winter season.

The festival begins on the first day of the new lunisolar year and ends with the Lantern Festival on the 15th day. It is one of several Lunar New Year celebrations in Asia.

The Chinese New Year is based on a traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar whose date indicates both the moon phase and the time of the solar year. A lunar month is around 2 days shorter than a solar month.

In order to “catch up” with the solar calendar, an extra month is inserted every few years. This is why the Chinese New Year falls on a different date each solar calendar year.

22 January 2023 is the start of the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Rabbit!

The years are marked by a repeating cycle of twelve animals. In order, they are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

I’ve made printables for the Year of the Tiger (2022), Year of the Ox (2021), Year of the Rat (2020), Year of the Pig (2019), Year of the Dog (2018), Year of the Rooster (2017), and Year of the Monkey (2016) make sure you check back every year for updates!

Handy Crafting Supplies for Chinese New Year Printables

It’s always useful to have some basic art supplies on hand to use with my free printables. You don’t need all the things on my suggested craft supplies list, but I wanted to share some of my Amazon favorites with you.

If you are short on space to store stuff, why not invest in a craft tote to keep everything together and stash away when not in use? There are many different sizes and styles, so buy one (or two) to suit your needs. I have a couple of these totes just for pens and pencils!
