Every year the New Year falls on the same day right?
Well, not exactly. The Chinese New Year, for example, is celebrated on the first day of the First Moon of the lunar calendar. In other words, their New Year is usually celebrated between January 21st and February 19th.
Tradition and rituals are involved in the Chinese New Year. One of them says that Zaowang was the Kitchen God. He invented fire, cared for the house morals, and protect the family home. Tradition says that Zaowang left the house on the 23rd day of the last month of the year. He went to heaven to report on the behavior of the family.
The family, of course, did everything possible to obtain a favorable report from the Kitchen God. They prepared good food, gave presents to the children, gathered the fmaily, and reconciled with the neighbors. The festivities lasted 15 days and ended with Festival of the Lanterns to wish happiness for everybody.
Traditions and cultures may be different in China and around the world now.  But, at least onde a year, all human beings wish peace and happiness to the rest of mankind.
So, "Gung hoy fat choy"which, by the way, means "Best wishes and congratulations. Have a prosperous and good year".
