Chinese New Year can be interpreted as a Spring Festival and is the most important holiday in China. It has been celebrated for more than two thousand years. After the introduction of the Gregorian calendar, this holiday became known as «Spring Festival,» in order to distinguish it from the western New Year.
The night prior to the Chinese New Year is called the reunion night. In 2015 it will be on the 19th of Februay.
