HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

Today we celebrate Chinese New Year, and 2018 is the year of the dog. While many of us celebrate New Year at the stroke of midnight on December 31, the Chinese New Year follows the lunar calendar so the date changes every year. This year it falls on February 16. Chinese astrology has a 12-year zodiac cycle with a different animal for each year, each with their individual characteristics. If you were born in the Year of the Dog: 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018 you are thought to be communicative, serious and responsible in work.
