The day is a large part of Chinese tradition and has been celebrated for centuries but the day is several millennia old. It is celebrated with red envelopes (which often contain money), gift exchanges, family reunions, and food. The Spring Festival is celebrated for 15 days starting with the first day of the month and ending with the 15th. The last day is celebrated as the Lantern Festival.
