As the date of Chinese New Year is based on a Lunar Calendar, which is a calendar based on the phases on the moon, it varies each year.
Each of the dates below corresponds to the new moon (black moon) which happens either in January or February.
The Chinese New Year of the Rooster will be on 28 January 2017. It will be year 4715 on the Chinese Calendar.
Until then, it is still the Year of the Monkey which began on 8 February 2016.
