Munoz wishes everyone a happy Chinese New Year
As we welcome in the year of the goat, State Senator Tony Munoz is wishing everyone a happy Chinese New Year.
Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated on the first day of the year of the Chinese calendar. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese calendar is lunisolar, therefore, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the "Lunar New Year".
在羊年即将到来的时刻，芝加哥地区州议员Tony Munoz先生祝愿大家新年快乐。 春节是中国最重要的传统节日。为庆祝新一年的开始，传统的庆祝活动将从农历最后一天的“除夕”一直延续到新年的1月15号“元宵节”，这是中国农历中最长的节日。中国的农历是根据月亮的变化而制定的，因此中国新年通常也被称作“农历新年”。
