According to Chinese astrology, a person's destiny can be determined by the position of the Sun, Moon, and major planets at the time of the person's birth.


The system of the twelve-year cycle of animal signs was built from observations of the orbit of Jupiter.


Ancient Chinese astronomers divided the night sky into twelve sections, and each section was symbolized by a particular animal. The twelve animals represented in the Chinese Zodiac are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat (a.k.a. Ram), Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig (a.k.a. Boar).

 


Chinese New Year is considered to be the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is celebrated in grand, colorful fashion all over the world, in any place where Chinese communities are found.

The Chinese New Year festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first lunar month in the Chinese calendar, and ends on the 15th day of the same lunar month.

The biggest event of any Chinese New Year's Eve is a family dinner comparable to Christmas dinner in the Western world.
