As mentioned, the Chinese New Year in Singapore starts on February 10, 2024. Celebrations will last 16 days, culminating with the Lantern Festival on February 24, 2024. Only February 10 and February 11 are considered public holidays. But since they fall on a weekend, the official public holiday is moved to February 12, 2024, Monday.
Chinese or Lunar New Year falls on different days each year, usually between January 21st and February 20th. Why? Unlike the Gregorian or international calendar, which follows the movement of the sun, the lunar calendar follows the moon’s movement.
