    Chinese Year 4715 - January 28, 2017. Rooster, a Yin year. 



    It's the year of the Rooster, Chinese Zodiac animal figure. It is a Yin (Negative) year. The date of Chinese New Years changes every year. It is a 15 day celebration, beginning on the first day of the new moon, and ends on the full moon. The celebration on the15th day is called the Chinese Lantern Festival. 

    Chinese culture is amongst the oldest in the world. While the rest of the world is in the early years of but the third millennium, Chinese culture is in their fifth millennium. 

    In Chinese astrology, every year is represented by an animal. The cycle is twelve years, with a different animal each year. To find out about your sign, and what it says about you, see Chinese Astrology.

    Chinese New years or Spring Festival, is the biggest holiday in chinese culture. It is celebrated with festivities, fireworks, brightly colored lights, special meals with family and gift giving. Like Christmas in the western world, most chinese travel home to be with family for the new year celebration.
