Chinese New Year 2021: The Year of the Ox

Lunar New Year 2021 – the Year of the Ox – began on February 12 in Asia, February 11 in the west. This holiday traditionally sparks what’s been called “the world’s largest annual human migration.”

Over a billion people in China and millions around the world celebrate Lunar New Year. The start of the holiday coincides with the date of new moon in Asia, which falls this year on February. Countries in Asia celebrating Lunar New Year include China, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. It’s also celebrated in Chinatowns and Asian homes around the world. It’s considered a time to honor deities and ancestors and to be with family. Each year is associated with one of 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac. 2021 is the Year of the Ox.

This year, the traditional Chinese Festival of Light will be held also in Belgrade and Novi Sad under special conditions, without a grand opening, respecting all epidemiological measures. The festival will be held from 11 to 25 February in Belgrade on the Sava Promenade in front of the Belgrade Gallery and in Novi Sad in the Liman Park.
