🧧 Lunar New Year App – Celebrate Chinese New Year 2023

A healthy wish for everyone. Currently, we sitting in the Year of the Tiger. And soon it is Chinese New Year. To help you know when it is the lunar new year, this useful My Lunar New Year app shows you the countdown to the day when it is Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year, Spring Festival, or the Lunar New Year, is the festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar.

However, it is not always on the same day as in the Gregorian calendar on 1 January. Therefore the algorithm in the My Lunar New Year app helps to calculate the date difference between the Chinese New Year to the Gregorian calendar, and that for each new year. And this year, Lunar New Year is happening on 22 January 2023. Furthermore, the app is available for iOS 16, macOS 13, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16.
