Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New Year!…Posted on 19 February 2015
Well-wishing’s for the Chinese New Year…
Yes, you’ve guessed it, today is that special day which marks the revival of the Chinese calendar, so we bid adieu to the year of the Rat and welcome the year of the Goat. Alternatively known as the Spring Festival, Chinese New Year is packed full of cultural fun, from lion dancers to show stopping fireworks, the Chinese definitely know how to greet a year in style.
Money, money, money…
This auspicious occasion summons the cost-omary tradition to dish out doe in red envelopes, typically given as gifts by elders to the younger generations (lucky so and so’s).
You must be barking mad…
Did you know in Chinese astrology, people often assume the only animal you can relate to is that of your birth year? This is a slight porkie as the 12 animals are also assigned months, days and even hours! So you could be a Dragon, Snake and Ox all rolled into one. Though it seems very bizarre, the saying does go “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”!
