The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.

The Year 2014 is the 4711th Chinese year. The Chinese believe that the first king of China was the Yellow King (he was not the first emperor of China. The Yellow King became king in 2697 B.C., therefore China will enter the 4711th year on January 31st, 2014. Also, the Chinese Year uses the cycle of 60 Stem-Branch counting systems and the Rabbit is the 28th Stem-Branch in the cycle. Since 4705 = (60 x 78) + 28, therefore this Horse Year is the 4711th Chinese Year.
