What is Lunar New Year?

Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, is an annual holiday celebrated in many East Asian countries as well as around the world in late January or early February. It is a major holiday in Greater China and has strongly influenced celebrations of neighbouring cultures, including the Korean New Year, the Tết of Vietnam, and the Losar of Tibet. The tradition is for families to gather for an annual reunion dinner and some give red envelopes with money as a New Year gift. It's a beautiful time to reconnect and celebrate. This year, use PayPal for all your Chinese New Year needs.
