This week millions of people all over the world will be celebrating Chinese New Year.

Statistics show that one-sixth of the world’s population will welcome in the Chinese New Year over the next few days.

Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year is the most important festival in the traditional Chinese calendar.

In Chinese tradition, each year is named after one of twelve animals, which feature in the Chinese zodiac.

2018 is the year of the dog.

In New Zealand, thousands of people of all ethnicities will flock to festivals in Auckland and Christchurch in the coming weeks to view spectacular lanterns and sample tasty street food.
