2018 Chinese New Year falls on February 5th. It is the Year of the Pig according to Chinese zodiac. It is a great chance to experience the folk customs!
Chinese New Year, also called Spring Festival, has more than 4,000 years of history. It is the grandest and the most important annual event for Chinese people. Being one of the traditional festivals, it is the time for the whole families to reunite together, which is similar with Christmas Day to the westerners.
Chinese New Year takes place on a different date every year, because it is based on the lunar calendar.
In this calendar a month is two days shorter than in the solar calendar so to make up for it an extra month is added every few years.
The lunar calendar means the celebration always falls on a different date - unlike the January 1 New Year we are used to, based on the Gregorian calendar.
But Chinese New Year always falls between the end of January and mid-February.
Each year is denoted by a different symbol from the Chinese 12 year animal zodiac, with this year being matched to the twelfth sign. This year is the Year of the Pig.
Pig is not thought to be a smart animal in China. It likes sleeping and eating and becomes fat. Thus it usually features laziness and clumsiness. On the positive side, it behaves itself, has no plan to harm others, and can bring affluence to people. Consequently, it has been regarded as wealth.
PalletMach all staffs wish you and your families Happy Chinese New Year! Kung Hey Fat Choy!
