What Is The League of Legends Lunar Revel?
Lunar Revel is League of Legends' annual celebration of the Chinese New Year (which in 2022 is The Year of The Tiger) and has existed in some form or another since 2011. Typically the team will release several new skins (some are already on the PBE) missions, and rewards to celebrate.

League of Legends Lunar Revel End Time Countdown
20 January 2022 -
The League of Legends Lunar Revel 2022 event has been revealed, alongside a release date for the next event and plenty of new details.
Lunar Revel starts January 26 and ends February 28.
There's also been a few changes to how the event mission points are earned, as per the below statement from the dev team:
Back in December, we made some changes to the way event mission points are earned, starting with the Debonair event. Our goal was to make League events more focused on League games, as well as to better respect your time.
However, we missed the mark on that second part—the technical hurdle of not having a point "rollover" mechanic unintentionally slowed down token rates, which truly was not the goal. Debonair event pass owners received a special mission for extra rewards accordingly, and we've made adjustments for this next event.
Token Bank missions have been reverted to the old system until the rollover problem has been addressed, and all other general objective requirements have been lowered by 15-40%.

League of Legends Lunar Event Start Date
At the time of writing Riot Games hasn't confirmed a release date for the League of Legends Lunar Revel 2022 event. However, with assets already available on the game's PBE right now, it would make sense if the event starts alongside the next update.
As per the existing League of Legends Patch Schedule, LoL Patch 12.2 has a release date set for January 20, 2022. For the time being though this is just speculation on our part, and we'll have to wait on an official announcement from the developer closer to the time for confirmation.
