Chinese New Year was normally a family affair, and Dunedin's celebrations were a good chance to get together and enjoy the fun, she said. In 2019, the Chinese New Year begins on February 5 and ends on February 19, and this period of time is also referred to as the "Spring Festival.'

The streets of Beijing and other major Chinese cities were quiet and empty yesterday after millions of people left to visit relatives or travel overseas during the year's biggest family holiday.
