We know you are still following all of your New Year's resolutions and refuse to give in to temptations. “In 2018, I resolve to eat less pie, spend at least one hour every morning on follow-ups and make sure that I am able to fulfill all orders by my clients' deadlines!”

Chinese New Year, commonly referred to as Spring Festival since the 20th century, remains the most important social and economic holiday in China. The holiday was originally tied to the lunar-solar Chinese calendar. Time was spent honoring your household, deities and ancestors. Families also gathered together to enjoy great feasts and connect with one another. After the adoption of the Western calendar in 1912, people of China joined in celebrating Jan. 1 as New Year's Day. Today China continues to celebrate the traditional Chinese New Year, but as Spring Festival, a shorter version of the original holiday. However, traditions have evolved over time, and younger generations of Chinese use it as a chance to take a break from work as opposed to renewing family ties.
