Chinese New Year is fast approaching and is an extremely popular celebration for many people in our communities. I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very succesful year, in this, the year of the Tiger.
The Chinese New Year starts on February 14th. The Year of the Earth Ox will end and the Year of the Metal Tiger will be ushered in. Celebrations will last for 15 days, until the full moon arrives and the Lantern Festival takes place. Metal Tiger is a positive sign for good luck with money. The Tiger is a symbol of power and authority.
A person born this year will be born in the Year of the Tiger. Tiger-born people are short-tempered, suspicious, adventurous, sensitive, emotional and risk-taking. Yep thats me, I was born in the year of the Tiger!
