The Lunar New Year, based on a Lunisolar Calendar, begins February 1, the day of the February New Moon (12:46 a.m. EST / 5:46 UTC - Primary Moon Phase: New Moon - Lunation #1226). In Southeast Asia cultures, this begins what is known as the Spring Festival, which lasts until the 15th day of the New Year when the Lantern Festival occurs. In China, the 2022 New Year is known as the Year of the Water Tiger. Details:
