Traditionally, families gather to share the blessings of the past year and attract good fortune in the coming one.
Chinese households set off fireworks on the eve of the New Year in order to drive away evil spirits.
Each year is associated with one of twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac.
For 2014, it's the year of the horse.

Exact origins of the Chinese zodiac are unknown, but common folklore has it that these are the twelve animals to reach heaven in a race.
