10+ ways to wear red for the Chinese New Year
The Chinese New Year, also called the Lunar New Year, starts with the first new moon between January 21 and February 20. This year, that falls on February 5. Those celebrating will set off fireworks (intended to ward off evil spirits) and end the holiday with the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month.
During the Lunar New Year, it's also customary to wear red. The color red, in Chinese culture, represents luck, happiness and vitality. It's also believed to fend off misfortune at the start of a new year.
