Blog by Bettina Reid | January 28th, 2017
The Lunar New Year is another name for what is known as Chinese New Year and 2017 is the year of the Rooster. It starts today and will last until the Lantern Festival on February 15th. Every year represents a different animal in a cycle of 12 years which make up the Chinese Zodiac. Each animal comprises one the five elements: wood, water, metal, fire and earth.
This year of the rooster is supposed to be the year of Fire. It is the 10th animal in the cycle. The Chinese culture believe each animal and their elements affect what the year will bring to each of us.
Chinese New Year celebrations will be happening all over the world over the next of the few days.
