Chinese New Year 2014 Year of the Horse 4712
Today is New Year's Eve
The Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, always coincides with the Lunar New Year’s new moon and ends on the full moon when the moon is at its brightest. Officially beginning at 12:01 a.m. January 31st, 2014 and extending through February 18th, 2015.
The horse enjoys the limelight and is energetic, intelligent with excellent communication skills. But, can also be hot-blooded; rarely accepting advice. For those who are not born under the sign of the horse, this is an excellent year for travel and exotic dining.
The Chinese New Year celebration is so important to Asians that, traditionally, they do not go to work for much of this festive period; banks and essential staff cooperate to work in shifts so that everyone can participate in the festivities. The third day of Chinese New Year is not only Super Bowl Sunday, but it is an important day to those celebrating the New Year.
You can read more about each day of the Chinese New Year in the February 2013 HICAP posts.
