Chinese New Year

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Gung Hay Fat Choy is the traditional greeting for the Chinese New Year.

The Chinese New Year does not fall on the same date each year although it is always in January or February.  The Chinese New Year is an important celebration all over the world with similar celebrations in Japan, Korea and Vietnam.  In the past the current emperor determined the start of the New Year but today celebrations are based on Emperor Han Wu Di’s almanac.  It uses the first day of the first month of the lunar year as the start of the Chinese New Year.

2015 is the year of the Goat.  Ram or sheep are also used for this year.

Have a wonderful year.
