Thursday, February 19, 2015 marks a very important date for China, people living in China, and Chinese people all over the world. The date calls for huge celebrations as it signifies the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Since the Chinese calculate their calendar days based on the Chinese lunar calendar, their New Year’s Day, known as Chuyi in Chinese, falls on a different date every year.
It is worth noting here that while it is 2015 according to the Gregorian calendar, it is 4712 according to the Chinese lunar calendar. Coincidentally, the Chinese New Year’s Day always falls anywhere between January 21 to February 20.
The Year of the Goat/Sheep
The Chinese have a tradition of associating every year with an animal, and 2015 is said to be the year of the Goat/Sheep. The year of the Goat predicts good fortune for people born in the year of the Goat (1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, and 2003); but we are taking these predictions with a pinch of salt.
The obvious reasons being the recent update to the Great Firewall of China, and other steps taken by the Chinese government to curb access to information, and essentially further limiting freedom of expression on the internet.
