Lunar New Year is celebrated by more than 1 billion people around the world, including in China, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Vietnam, and many more. As hinted by the name, the dates of Lunar New Year celebrations are determined by the phases of the moon. The holiday begins during the second new moon after the winter solstice, around late January to mid-February, and celebrations usually last for 15 days.
