In the spirit of the New Year, I thought a blog on Chinese astrology would be fun!
This Thursday, the 19th of February, marks the start of the Chinese New Year. In China, the New Year celebration is 7 days long and is considered the most important time of the year. These celebrations started about 4,000 years ago…talk about tradition! During this time, families get together for dinners- often Chinese dumplings (which bring good fortune), parades, dragon dances, and other festivals. Red is the lucky color associated with the New Year, so you can see it all over the place in clothing, lanterns, tapestries, gift wrappings, confetti, and more!
