Chinese New Year

On January 28, 2017, the Asian Community will celebrate the Lunar New Year, 4715 on Chinese calendars, which is Year of the Rooster. The Rooster is the tenth animal of the Chinese Zodiac. Those born in the Year of the Rooster are hardworking, courageous, and confident, but can also be arrogant, vain, and boastful about themselves and their accomplishments.

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.
