Today is Chinese New Year! It's the Year of the Dog!

Today is Chinese New Year  and there are colourful celebrations happening all over the world. New year is the biggest event in the Chinese calendar, the occasion is also known as the Spring Festival, and it’s marked by many countries around the world.Celebrations include parades and festivals full of incredible performances, colourful props and light shows surrounding the theme of the New Year. This year it is the Chinese Year of the Dog so if you were born in 2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970 and 1958 you are all ‘dogs’!


The traditional belief is that the animal you’re represented by can tell you a lot about your personality and with each animal comes a different type. This year’s dog is the ‘Earth Dog’ which last appeared in 1958. Earth dogs are communicative, serious and responsible in work.
