Chinese welcome the Year of the Tiger

Monday in China was the last day of the Year of the Ox — and Tuesday opened the Year of the Tiger.

The lunar new year, which is most prominently associated with Chinese culture, started on Feb. 1  and begins a festival in many Asian countries that can last for about two weeks.

The lunar year is based on the 12 phases of the moon, which each last around 29 days and comprise about 354 days — meaning it falls on a different date each year. In 2023, the lunar new year will begin Jan. 22.
