2024 is the year that the good fortune of the Wood Dragon is going to be sprinkled on us all. But what’s in store for your animal sign?
WHAT IS CHINESE NEW YEAR?
Chinese New Year – also called Lunar New Year – is an annual festival celebrated in China and Chinese communities around the world. This year Chinese New Year 2024 falls on Saturday 10th February and will culminate with the famous Lantern Festival on February 24th.
2024 – THE YEAR OF THE WOOD DRAGON EXPLAINED
First things first – it’s good news. The mythical dragon is esteemed in Chinese Zodiac, showering success and good fortune on those born in its years. And this year, we all get a piece of the action.
You’ll have seen the dragon making appearances at festivals around the world as it’s believed to spread good luck – with only one caveat. The dragon is a noble beast and will only shower good fortune on those who deserve it.
WHICH ANIMAL OF THE CHINESE ZODIAC ARE YOU?
The Chinese Zodiac is made up of 12 different animals and each year is associated with one of them, rotating through the 12 on a continuing cycle. According to Asian astrology, the year of your birth – and the animal that year represents – says a lot about your personality traits and what kind of life you will lead.
Remember though, all you January birthdays – a ‘year’ is defined by the Chinese astrological chart, not a Gregorian calendar, so you’ll have to check the exact dates of your specific birth ‘year’.
