Happy Lunar New Year!
Around the globe approximately 2 Billion people are getting ready to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Many, but not all, Asian countries celebrate the start of the new year according to the lunar calendar which in 2024 is on February 10.
Every new year corresponds to an animal of the Chinese zodiac that foretells the year ahead. There are 12 Asian zodiac animals. In order, the 12 animals are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. 2024 is the year of the dragon. People born under the sign of the dragon are said to be confident, independent, charismatic, ambitious, adventurous and fearless.
