2018 MAY BE A “RUFF” YEAR
Chinese New Year starts on Friday February 16th……2018 is a Year of the Dog.
In Chinese astrology, each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to the 12-year cycle. 2018 is an Earth Dog Year.
Years of the Dog include 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, and 2030… The Dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, after the Rooster, and before the Pig.
If you’re born in a Dog year, you’re a Dog, and the following are deemed lucky for you:
- Lucky numbers: 3, 4, 9
- Lucky colors: red, green, and purple
- Lucky flowers: rose, cymbidium orchids
Unlike the New Year we celebrate here in the USA, the date of Chinese New Year differs from year to year. Chinese New Year is known as the Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival and the meaning of the festival is for families to come together and wish each other peace and prosperity. A zodiac animal on the lunar-solar Chinese calendar is represented annually. People are said to hold similar personality traits to the animal named after the year they were born. Bow-wow.
