The lunar new year starts early this year
This year we celebrate the Year of the Horse, considered a lucky year, on Friday, January 31st. A Chinese saying: “A good horse never turns its head to eat the grass behind.” So, look ahead, not back. Those born under the horse sign may be a little untamed, but they are supposed to be popular, cheerful, talented, independent and skillful with their money.
Also known as the Spring Festival, 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. Chinese New Year is often referred to as the “Lunar New Year”.
The 114th Annual Golden Dragon Parade & Chinese New Year Festival is on Saturday, February 1, 2014. Learn more by visiting lagoldendragonparade.com
