This year's Lunar New Year, also called Spring Festival in China, falls on Feb 10. It is the most celebrated traditional festival in China, when families gather for reunions and set off firecrackers. The Lunar New Year is also celebrated in many other countries.

In December, the 78th General Assembly adopted a resolution by consensus to list the Lunar New Year as a UN floating holiday, which means the Lunar New Year will be celebrated at the UN too.
