The Chinese new year is absolutely and completely not lunar new year. because Chinese new year takes two ways of numbering the years, which number the years of lunar and solar respectively. If just use lunar calendar, then the lunar new year maybe appear any time to people who live in the north global. Why does someone call it lunar new year, the one reason is enough shortage about Chinese culture, the other is Chinese culture influenced some countries, and make them uncomfortable. So some people or countries put forward the lunar new year. I'd like to say time will prove everything no matter what you do!
