Starting with the Reunion Dinner on Lunar New Year's Eve, the Chinese celebrate 15 days into the New Year, culminating with the Lantern Festival on the last day. The entire season of festivities is called the Spring Festival. From fireworks to lights to big dinners and gifts, the Spring Festival is Thanksgiving, Christmas and our New Year rolled into one.
Because of the scale and significance of the Spring Festival in Chinese culture, this period creates the largest annual human traffic migration in the world. Travel is so voluminous during the 40 days surrounding the Spring Festival that this period of travel even has a name - Chunyun. This year, an estimated 2.9 billion trips will be made during Chunyun.
