This study is conducted to find out how Chinese Indonesians in Semarang celebrate Chinese New Year. The participants of this research were five males and six females of Chinese Indonesian living in Semarang who still celebrate Chinese New Year. In finding participants, the writer used snowball sampling in which one participant was asked to mention potential participants for the research. The writer did the research by interviewing the participants with open-ended questions by recording the conversation, taking pictures, and making outline to understand how Chinese people in Semarang celebrate Chinese New Year. Based on the data that the writer got from the interviewees, it can be concluded that different people in Semarang may celebrate Chinese New Year differently. They celebrate the Chinese New Year by cleaning the temple or monastery (especially Buddhist or Confucius), cleaning the house, holding ancestral prayer with a table full of various foods as a symbol of their honor to the ancestors, gathering with the big family and having a meal out or at home holding the Lord's worship or often known as king di kong. Finally, they close the Chinese New Year by having lontong cap go meh. One interesting thing that the writer finds is that they celebrate by visiting pasar semawis. This is not done by Chinese people, as only in Semarang is there pasar semawis, which is held yearly for three days before the celebration of Chinese New Year.
