On February 16, 2018, the Asian Community will celebrate the Lunar New Year, 4716 on Chinese calendars, which is Year of the Dog. The Dog is the eleventh animal of the Chinese Zodiac. Those born in the Year of the Dog are loyal, honest, amiable, and happy. They are good natured, always ready to help others, and are active at sports and in good health.

Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year’s Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, while some may celebrate up to a month.
