Happy Chinese New Year!
It’s odd that the Chinese New Year falls in January. Sometimes it’s in February. But guess what? It’s amazing. Besides celebrating the nation I came from with family and friends, it’s an amazing excuse to eat as much Chinese food that I want.
This year is the Year of the Rooster.
The rooster is flamboyant, competitive, and out-spoken.
Famous roosters include: Eric Clapton, Katharine Hepburn, James Mason, Dolly Parton, Richard Wagner.
Though, does anyone know how the animals became a part of the Chinese Zodiac? Or how the Chinese New Year animal is determined? Probably only a few. Well, here’s a short video that will explain everything.
The Chinese New Year is an amazing time for many people in the world. I love it because it’s a celebration of my heritage. I hope everyone has a great Chinese New Year, 2017.
