CHINESE NEW YEAR 2014…
This year’s Chinese New Year 2014 falls earlier in the year than usual, on Friday, January 31, and is the year of the horse.
People born in the year of the horse (see chart below!) have ingenious communicating techniques and in their community they always want to be in the limelight. They are clever, kind to others, and like to join in a venture career. However, They cannot bear too much constraint. Their interest may be only superficial and lacking real substance. They are usually impatient and hot blooded about everything other than their daily work.
WHAT ANIMAL ARE YOU?
One of the traditional Chinese New Year activities is to set off firecrackers at midnight to ward off evil spirits and celebrate the arrival of the Lunar New Year. This is done in NYC also. There will be the lion dance, the infamous dragons, drumming, dancing and booths in the streets selling traditional Chinese New Year Items. This is also a very big event in America & celebrated widely around the world which is nice to see.
