Did you know that Lunar New Year is celebrated by more people than any other holiday on earth? It is recognized in East Asian countries, the Hindu-Buddhist calendars of South and Southeast Asia, the Islamic calendar and the Jewish calendar in the Middle East, and is also celebrated by the indigenous Nisga'a people of Canada. This year, the first day of the lunisolar calendar falls on January 22, 2023, which will mark the beginning of the Year of the Rabbit as determined by the Chinese Zodiac.
