February 7, 2024

What is Lunar New Year?

The Lunar New Year also commonly known as the Chinese New Year marks the beginning of the lunar or lunisolar calendar. The lunar calendar follows the lunar phases, rather than the solar Gregorian calendar (what is used in most parts of the world). The Lunar New Year is celebrated widely in China, and across other Asian countries such as Vietnam, South Korea, and Singapore. Each country titles the holiday differently with their respective languages.

What is the Chinese Zodiac?

The Chinese Zodiac consists of 12 signs (animals), and every year is represented an animal. In order, the animals are listed as: the rat, the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the sheep (or goat), the monkey, the rooster, the dog, and the pig. Each animal is associated with and expected to have a variety of personality traits, similar to Greek astrology signs.

What is 2024 in the Chinese Zodiac?

Currently on the fifth animal of the cycle, 2024 is the Year of the Dragon. According to the Chinese zodiac, those born in the Year of the Dragon are ambitious, confident, and energetic. They are naturally gifted and lucky individuals who excel in life. With their great displays of talent, their primary flaw falls on their inability to accept defeat. The characteristics and personality associated with your Zodiac sign are a generalization that should always be handled with a grain of salt.
