Chinese New Year, also known as Spring festival, falls on Saturday, January 28, this year. The date is based on the Chinese lunar calendar and is characterized by one of 12 animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac. 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, which is the tenth animal in the cycle that includes rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, dog and pig.
The celebrations begin one day before the New Year till the 15th day, which is known as the
Lantern Festival. The most important Chinese festival is celebrated in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritius and the Philippines.
Significance of people born in the Year of Monkey
According to Chinese astrology, the year of one’s birth sign (本命年 běnmìngnián /bnn-ming-nyen/ ‘origin (of) life year’) is the most unlucky year in the 12-year cycle. In the year of your sign, fortune in all aspects of your life will not be as good.
Therefore “Roosters” should be more careful in years of the Rooster. Read more on How to Be Lucky in Your Ben Ming Nian.
The next Rooster year is 2017. It starts on Chinese New Year’s day (January 28, 2017). Roosters born in January and February should take particular note of when Chinese New Year falls to confirm their birth sign.
