Chinese New Year is the Chinese festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. In 2020, the first day of the Chinese New Year will be on Saturday, 25 January, initiating the Year of the Rat.

Chinese New Year was traditionally a time to honour deities as well as ancestors. Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the New Year vary widely, and the evening preceding Chinese New Year's Day is frequently regarded as an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly clean their house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for incoming good luck. Another custom is the decoration of windows and doors with red paper-cuts and couplets. Popular themes among these paper-cuts and couplets include that of good fortune or happiness, wealth, and longevity. Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes.

In modern China, migrant workers in China travel home to have reunion dinners with their families on Chinese New Year's Eve. At this period, China has extremely high traffic load. The period usually begins 15 days before Lunar New Year's Day and lasts for around 40 days. As of 2016, the number of passenger-journeys during the Chunyun period was almost three billion. It has been called the largest annual human migration in the world.
