News Chinese New Year on 5 February 2019 – The Year of the Pig

new year china

Same procedure as every year. Soon it will be time again, in China the new year of the lunar calendar will be heralded with great effort and celebrated accordingly. The year of the dog is coming to an end, followed by the year of the pig. Characteristics like optimism, generosity and intelligence are attributed to the pig.

The festivities last a whole week (also called “golden week”), during which the whole country comes to a standstill more or less because everyone simply has a holiday. The Chinese also speak of the “spring festival”.

Delayed shipping when ordering from China

Long-time China gadget users already know what this means for ordering in China, but we would like to point this out again here: The Chinese online shops are also taking a break during this time; some of us are already noticing that they are making themselves scarce there. Not much changes for you, orders are still possible during this time, but shipping will be delayed by up to two weeks. This concerns the period around the “New Year’s Day”, depending on the shop also in the week before and after. Overall there will be delays, especially in the week from 4.2. to 10.2., depending on which shop you order from.

Despite the circumstances when ordering, the whole China-Gadgets Team wishes you a good and successful start into the new year.

After joining the team in late 2015 I quickly fell in love with aerial photography. Today I review most of our drones. I'm also interested in gaming related gadgets.

Psst! Hey you! We finance the gadget tests mainly through advertising revenue.

We have used very little advertising to make your stay with us as pleasant as possible.

Therefore we would be happy if you would deactivate your ad blocker on our pages - so we can test even more :-).

Your CG-Team!
