Chinese New Year !

March 14th, 2015

In China they celebrate the New Year with a huge festival. They even have animal names for each year. For instance I myself  was born in the year of the monkey which is the year 2004 same as Robyn in the Bexcellent team. If you know what an astrological sign is your year is technically the same. In China this festive season can last for up to twenty-three days! This year happens to be the year of the horse so if your a horse lover this is the year for you but for sheep lovers their year is next. I bet you love Christmas. Well, did you know that in China Christmas does not exist unless you’re a Christian! Imagine that! No Christmas! But they make up for it by having the New Year celebrations in February. Be a geek and show off to your friends by telling them that on Thursday 19th February 2015, it will be the year of the sheep and we are waving goodbye to the year of the horse. If you were born between January 1st – January 20th you’ll be the animal before.

Here is a diagram of the animals and years,
