On February 4th 2008 we enter a new Solar Chinese year (year 4705th in the Chinese calendar), the year of the Yang Earth Rat (Wu Zi). Please do not get confused with solar and lunar calendars, more on this below.

Chinese New Year 2008:

Chinese New Year (according to the lunar calendar) starts on the 7th February 2008 (38th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar of 2008) and is celebrated by the Chinese all over the world. It heralds new beginnings and a fresh start. At a social level, it is very much a family affair,  time of reunion, forgiveness, sharing and thanksgiving. In 2008 Chinese New Year falls on Thursday February 7th 2008 at 11.44 (am) China (Lunar calendar), Thursday 7th 03.44 United Kingdom, Wednesday 6th 19.44 California USA, Thursday 7th 04.44 Barcelona Spain, and because the CNY falls late morning in China and due to time differences around the world it will fall what appears to be a day early in some countries. I have done a Chinese New Year world time converter table to assist you. This is the date you celebrate the Chinese New Year with Ang Pow, fireworks etc and not the date you use to place your cures and enhancers in Feng Shui (February 4th 2008).

The Lunar Chinese New Year Day is very different from the Solar (Hsia) New Year Day (February 4th 2008). The Lunar Calendar formulates the days of the month according to the cycle of the moon whereas the solar year is governed by the sun. Although the Chinese solar year starts on a different date from the western year, the theory whereby the year is calculated on how long it takes the earth to go round the sun is the same. The lunar cycle lasts approximately 29.5 days and in order that the start of the Lunar New Year is not too far removed from the Solar New Year, the Chinese insert an extra month, this being called an intercalary month, once every few years. This is why Chinese New Year Day falls on a different date in each of the two calendars.

Whilst the solar (Hsia) calendar starts the New Year at the beginning of Spring, which falls normally between the 4th and 5th of February, the lunar (yueh) calendar marks the New Year on the second New moon after the winter solstice. In 2008, Lunar Chinese New Year also called the ‘Spring Festival’, falls on 7th February 2008 which is the New Year that is celebrated by all ethnic Chinese. The solar New Year (4th February 2008) is not celebrated at all and only used for Feng Shui placement.

You may have come across a few websites stating that 2008 is the 4706th Chinese New Year, if you cannot find the reason, here is an answer for you:

The Yellow King’s appointment was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But they used the winter solstice day as the first day of the year. So the first winter solstice was on around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today’s January 1st means nothing to the Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C. for a year, then year 2008 is the 4705th Chinese year.
