The New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year. The festivities usually start the day before the New Year and continue until the Lantern Festival, the 15th day of the New Year. This year, Chinese New Year - The Year of the Monkey - began on February 8th and lasts until January 27th, 2017.

Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 blocks (or houses) just like its western counterpart, but with the major difference being that each house has a time-length of one year instead of one month. 

People born in the Year of the Monkey are characterised as lively, quick-witted, curious, innovative and mischievous, but it is also believed to be one of the most unlucky years in the Chinese calendar. 

The general image of people in this zodiac sign is of always being smart, clever and intelligent, especially in their career and wealth. 

In addition, their gentleness and honesty bring them an everlasting love life. Although they were born with enviable skills, they still have several shortcomings, such as an impetuous temper and a tendency to look down upon others. 

The Sydney Opera House was bathed in red light as part of city wide lumiere and lantern display to welcome in Chinese New Year. The display will continue until 21st February.

We wish all of our Chinese customers a wonderful New Year filled with happiness and prosperity.
