Chinese New Year actually runs from New Years Eve (yesterday) until the 15th day of the new month, and the dates change every year.
I love some of the New Year traditions that the Chinese follow, such as;
- thoroughly cleaning the house to get rid of any bad luck from the last year
- having a reunion dinner for family
- decorating windows and doors with red paper cut into traditional Chinese images
- lighting fireworks
- and giving money in red envelopes
Will you be celebrating Chinese New Year? And if so, how?
2014 is the Year of the Horse, which is great for people born in 1978, 1990, 2002, and of course 2014, as well as others.
People who are born in the Year of the Horse are supposed to have the following traits;
- love being the center of attention
As well as each year being dedicated to an animal, different years have different elements. 2014 is the Year of the Wooden Horse. This means that people born in this year strong and good at making decisions.
Unfortunately I won't be celebrating Chinese New Year but I hope some of you are, and I'd love to know how! Tweet me a photo! @smeethsaysfashn
