Why Chinese New Year is Celebrated in Winter :
Like Christmas in the other countries, Chinese New Year is China's much-needed winter holiday.
It was set to coincide with the slack time just before a new year of farm work begins, as a time of preparation.
Traditionally most Chinese were farmers, so this made sense.
Now 55% of China's population is urban (a generation ago it was 25%), but 100+ million return to their rural roots for CNY.

Officially Celebration — 7 Days (February 7–13, 2016)
It's a public holiday for Chinese. Usually people have 7 consecutive days off from Chinese New Year's Eve to the sixth day after Chinese New Year's Day.
The most important days of celebration are:
Chinese New Year's Eve (February 7, 2016; Chúxi /choo-sshee/ 'Excluded Evening' on the Chinese calendar): the day of family reunions
Chinese New Year's Day (February 8, 2016; Chuyi /choo-ee/ 'First One' on the Chinese calendar): the day of (close) family visits and New Year greetings
Traditional Celebration — 23 days (January 31 – February 22, 2016)
fortuneThe character "fortune" is an important Chinese New Year decoration.
Traditionally celebrations start much earlier than Chinese New Year's Eve. Some people start to celebrate three weeks before, the 8th day of the twelfth Chinese month
(January 16, 2016; Làba /laa-baa/ '12th lunar month + 8').
More people celebrate from the 23rd of the twelfth lunar month (January 31, 2016). They start to clean the house to welcome a new year from then.
Traditionally the end day of the Spring Festival is the fifteenth day of the first Chinese month, February 22, 2016 — the Lantern Festival.
Chinese make all kinds of beautiful lanterns and eat sweet glutinous rice balls in sweet soup ( tangyuán /taang-ywen/ 'soup round').

2016 — A Monkey Year
Chinese New Year 2016 will be a year of the Monkey.
For people born in a year of the monkey (1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004), 2016 is considered a bad year.

Chinese New Year in 2019 is on Tuesday, the 5th of February (5/2/2019).
According to the Chinese 12-year animal zodiac cycle, the Chinese year beginning in 2019 is the year of the Pig.
Each Chinese zodiac year begins on Chinese New Year's Day.
Pig years are believed to be the most unlucky for people born in previous years of the Pig.

The Rat is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Zi (子) and the midnight hours.
In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day.

- China expands lockdown against virus, fast-tracks hospital
BEIJING (AP) — China expanded its lockdown against the deadly new virus to an unprecedented 36 million people and rushed to build a prefabricated,
1,000-bed hospital for victims Friday as the outbreak cast a pall over Lunar New Year, the country’s biggest, most festive holiday.
On the eve of the Lunar New Year, transportation was shut down Friday in at least 10 cities with a total of about 33 million people.
And authorities in Beijing and other cities canceled many public celebrations and other events marking Lunar New Year, which falls on Saturday.
“To address the insufficiency of existing medical resources,” Wuhan authorities said in a Friday notice, the city is constructing a hospital modeled after the Xiaotangshan SARS hospital in Beijing.
The facility will be a prefabricated structure on a 25,000- square-meter (270,000-square-foot) lot, slated for completion Feb. 3. 2020.
Transportation was shut down in Wuhan, the city of 11 million at the epicenter of the outbreak, and in at least 12 other cities in central China’s Hubei province,
encompassing a population bigger than that of New York, London, Paris and Moscow combined.

- China Hospital in 10 days ..... Germany Berlin Airport maybe after 16 years ....
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Brandenburg_Airport
After almost 15 years of planning, construction began in 2006.
Originally planned to open in October 2011, the airport has encountered a series of delays and cost overruns.
These were due to poor construction planning, execution, management, as well as corruption.
A TÜV report published in November 2017 suggested that the opening could even be delayed until 2021
