Chinese New Year
Chinese New year in Hong Kong is full of activities and Chinese traditions. Also known as Lunar New Year, it's one of the most important holidays in the entire Chinese Calendar, falling on the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar. Every year an animal is celebrated, and birth years are associated with these animal horoscopes. The dates change every year but traditionally fall toward the end of January to early February. One can witness lion dances, parades, and fireworks over the harbor during this festive time of year. Many shops and restaurants close for the first 3 days so it's a quieter time of year in many ways, traditionally a time to travel and visit family, enjoy banquet-style dinners, and exchange red pockets known in Cantonese as lai see, "lucky money."
