About Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China. In 2020, Chinese New Year begins on January 25 and marks the beginning of the Year of the Rat. Tied to the lunar calendar, the holiday typically falls in late January or early February.

Within mainland China, businesses close and workers go home for several weeks. A comparable holiday is Christmas in the U.S., but longer and with more extensive travel. The holiday shutdown can affect manufacturing production for as long as two months.

Take note of these dates and plan accordingly. Don’t delay—contact us to begin your order today.
