New Year's Day (New Year) is the first day of the year, also known as the "new calendar year" and "the solar calendar year." New Year's Day is also known as the "three yuan", which is the yuan of the age, the yuan of the moon, and the yuan of time.
The "New Year's Day" mentioned today is the first plenary meeting of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference on September 27, 1949. While deciding to establish the People's Republic of China, it also decided to adopt the universal year of the AD method and the Gregorian calendar. On January 1st, it was officially designated as "New Year's Day", and the first day of the first lunar month was changed into "Spring Festival."
Since New Year's Day was started in the Republic of China and evolved from the Spring Festival, when Chinese just started celebrating New Year's Day, the customs and habits of its celebration are of course similar to the Spring Festival.
Every New Year's Day, every household will set off firecrackers, kill chickens and slaughter geese, and worship a family of gods after a family reunion.
