BEIJING, January 20  -- China will organize various events around the world to celebrate the Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival to share Chinese culture and traditions.
Spring Festival activities such as parades, lantern displays, performances, sports events, forums, and tourism and sales promotions will be held in many countries around the world.
A series of publications, including books, films and animations, will be created for overseas audiences to help them understand the history and traditions of the festival.
Spring Festival is the most important festival in the Chinese calendar, which falls on February 16 this year. Celebrations traditionally begin from new year's eve and last until the Lantern Festival, the 15th day of the first lunar month.
