History of the Chinese New Year
According to tales and legends, the beginning of Chinese New Year started with the fight against a mythical beast called the “Year”. At the night of New Year’s Eve, the “Year” comes out to harm people, animals, and properties. Later people have realized that the Monster is afraid of the color red, also fire, and loud noises. Therefore, for self-protection, people formed the habit of posting red Dui Lian in front of their house as well as launching fireworks, and hanging lanterns at the end of the year.

Did you know the date for the Chinese New Year is different every year?
The difference is based on the first day of the year in the Chinese calendar, and the 1st of January in the Chinese calendar is different from the one in the standard calendar every year.
The traditions during Chinese New Year
On the 28th of December (Chinese calendar), Chinese people will throw away all the old stuff that they don’t need anymore and clean up their houses thoroughly as a preparation of the new year, which represents the idea of a fresh start.
On the 30th of December (New Year’s Eve, Chinese calendar), most companies will release their staff early so they can have an early, festive dinner with their relatives, signifying that they are well, healthy and take the time to get together to celebrate the end of a year.
On the 1st of January (New Year, Chinese calendar), Chinese people mostly will wear new and colorful clothes and shoes, and visit friends and relatives at their home to greet, celebrate and bring good wishes to them. If the person that you greet is married then as a tradition he or she will hand out red packets which contain money, in return for the courtesy of the blessing. Also on this day they enjoy many festive gourmet meals such as New Year cake, radish cake, melon seeds.
So, what can we and Roosters expect in 2017 shortly?
In the Year of the Rooster there will be a tendency to take life and our responsibilities seriously, but also a danger that we could buy into the belief that we are responsible for the rising and setting of the Sun. The Rooster is an industrious and hard working year, a year where you’re able to get a lot done, take on more responsibility and accomplish and acquire a lot.
According to the Chinese 12-year animal zodiac cycle, 2017 is the year of the Rooster. Rooster years include: 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017… If you were born in one of these years then you’re a Rooster! Each Chinese zodiac year begins on Chinese New Year’s Day.
When it comes to work, it is worth following this simple rule for the Roosters to do more and speak less at work in 2017. Based on their zodiac sign they should work very hard to benefit from the occurring opportunities. It is highly advised to make charitable donations, that will certainly increase their luck.
Basically as per the Chinese astrology, the year of one’s birth sign is considered to be the most unlucky year for them in the 12-year cycle, so it is worth paying closer attention to all fields of life to avoid any negativities and inconveniences.
Good news is that chances are high for single Roosters to find a partner eventually but if you have already been in a relationship for a longer period of time, this year you may get married!
This year we have a Fire Rooster and here we have something special. The last time we had a Fire Rooster year was back in 1957. Fire is motivated, full of passion, motivation and a need for action. There is a tendency with the Fire Rooster energy to become one eyed, in that once you form an opinion you stick to it, no matter what. Yet so long as you’re aware of that, then you can use this to your advantage in anything that does require you to stick to something once you start.
In summary the Rooster is a year where you are likely to get a lot done, mainly by rolling up your sleeves, taking responsibility and sticking to something until the job is done. It is also a year where you’re likely to be recognized for hard work, especially if you’ve put in the effort and you don’t give up. There is a need though to avoid taking on so much responsibility that you believe that the Sun and Moon won’t rise without you. The Rooster believes in playing it by the book and will smile on those that play by the book and the rules as well.
