Are you ready for another New Year’s Eve on January 27? Or haven’t you recovered yet from the New Year’s Eve that just happened a few weeks ago?

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is one of the most colorful celebrations of the year whether in China or elsewhere around the world. Based on the lunar calendar, Chinese New Year is on a different date each year unlike the January 1 New Year celebrated in many parts of the world.

Each year in the Chinese calendar is represented by a different animal based on the Chinese 12-year animal zodiac. The symbol for this year is the rooster.

Were you born in a rooster year – 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005?

Do you have a rooster personality – confident, honest, hardworking? Roosters also like being in the spotlight.

Are you going to celebrate Chinese New Year? Here’s how to go about it. On New Year’s Eve, gather your family for a big dinner and then set off firecrackers to signal the end of the previous year and the beginning of the new one.

On New Year’s Day, gather your family again to clean house and sweep away bad fortune that might have accumulated over the past year.

Parents give their children red envelopes stuffed with ‘lucky money’ and special notes expressing their wishes that the children will grow up healthy. In this modern day, parents can give their children red digital envelopes with cyber money instead of the physical envelopes with paper money.

You’ll want to start decorating your house right away with rooster-themed cutouts and banners. And get ready for the parades, dancing, bell ringing, and firecrackers.

Take part in the celebrations and make some new resolutions. Maybe you’ll actually be able to follow through on these resolutions.
