Chinese communities around the world welcomed the Year of the Pig. They celebrated Lunar New Year with prayers, family feasts, and shopping sprees.
From the past week, millions of people stuffed into the buses, trains, and other vehicles to reach their families.
Celebrations will take place across the globe, from Southeast Asia’s centuries-old Chinese communities to the recently established Chinatowns of Sydney, London, Vancouver, Los Angeles and beyond.
Pigs symbolize good fortune and wealth in Chinese culture and this is the most important holiday in the Chinese calendar.
During the Spring Festival season, a 40-day period known as Chunyun, Chinese people will be on the move and so overall 3 million people will journey.
