In China, the Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival is the most important festival of the year, like Christmas in the UK. It is celebrated on a different date every year because the date is based on the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar. A lunar month is two days shorter than a solar month and so, every few years an extra month is added to make up for this, hence why the date changes every year.
