Another forum tells me it's actually today:
Quote
2016 is the 4713th Chinese Year. According to Chinese Horoscope calendar, the first day of Red Monkey is on February 4, 2016. However this day is not the Chinese New Year Day, Chinese New Year Day is on February 8, 2016.

So, Happy New Year!

I've seen a few commercials that say "lunar new year" instead of "Chinese new year". Is this to be inclusive of other cultures who use the lunar calendar?

Exactly correct. Lunar New Year is an important festival in Vietnam and Korea for example.

And yes, I posted my original greeting on New Year's Eve, because I didn't expect to have access to the internet while I was busy with helping my family with preparing and eating Reunion Dinner.  :-D

I'd say this thread was started before New Year's Eve because time zones.  :police:

Lunar New Year doesn't seem like a great name either.  There are other lunar calendars that mark New Year's at different times of the year (the Hebrew and Islamic calendars being examples.)
