Born in the Year of the Dog?
The Chinese New Year Calendar
Chinese New Year is not the same as the New Year the rest of the western world celebrates. This is because the Chinese use the lunar calendar – so New Year depends on the cycle of the moon and falls on a totally different day each year .
New Year is a special time in China. It is a time when the festive spirit is high and there are all kinds of celebrations going on. As has been the ancient tradition, the years are represented by animal signs associated with the change of time. There are twelve animals that repeat every twelve years; 2017 represents the tenth animal of the Chinese zodiac.
