Chinese horoscope year 2016 zodiac

Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival in China, is China’s most important traditional festival. The date of Chinese New Year is based on the Chinese lunar calendar, not the Gregorian calendar, but is always somewhere in the period from January 21 to February 20.
In 2016, most Chinese will be off work 7 days from Sunday, February 7 (New Year's Eve) to Saturday, February 13 (Chinese New Year day 6). The main traditional celebrations of the festival include eating reunion dinner with family, giving red envelopes, firecrackers, new clothes, and decorations. In North China people perform various versions of the Rice Sprout Song, a traditional Chinese dance performed by a group of colorfully-dressed women and men.
Red envelopes are used in the hope of giving good luck (as well as money) to the receivers.
Certain foods are eaten during the festival (especially at the New Year’s Eve dinner) because of their symbolic meanings, based on their names or appearances.
Fish is a must for Chinese New Year as the Chinese word for fish sounds like the word for surplus. Other Chinese New Year foods include dumplings, spring rolls, glutinous rice cakes, and sweet rice balls.
It has long been a Chinese tradition to set off firecrackers when the New Year clock strikes. Praying in a temple during Chinese New Year is said to be a particularly blessed activity, and will lead to a smooth coming year.
As Chinese people believe that the year’s start affects the whole year, are many superstitions and taboos for the Spring Festival season.

Chinese New Year is a joyful time for most, but for singles above the normal matrimonial age it is not so. To solve this problem an interesting, and often ridiculous, solution has appeared — renting a boyfriend or girlfriend for the New Year. The Chinese New Year period is a good time to visit China if you are interested in traditional Chinese culture.
Chinese people do whatever they can to go home to see their families: from buying a ticket from scalpers at several times the price, to queuing for three days, to fighting for a ticket, to standing for more than 20 hours in an over-packed train, or riding a bus with 20 extra passengers on stools down the aisle for 12 hours or more.

The rat and the cat quickly jumped up and were very excited when the ox soon took the lead in the race.
The poor ox had been tricked into second place and the second year of the horoscope was named after him. Just as he was thinking the horse would be the next animal to arrive, a sneaky snake wriggled out from around one of the horse’s hooves.
Now there was one place left in the horoscope and the Emperor wondered when the last winner would come. As for the cat who had been pushed into the water by the rat, he finally crawled out of the water but was too late to have a year named after him. From that day to this Chinese Astrology has followed this cycle of years named after these twelve animals.

Chinese traditionally celebrated the start of a new year of farm work, and wished for a good harvest (when most were farmers). More modern celebrations include watching the CCTV Gala, instant message greetings, and cyber money gifts. Big families of several generations sit around round tables and enjoy the food and time together. Rural areas and small towns retain more traditional celebrations than the cities, such as setting off firecrackers, ancestor worship, and dragon dances. A great variety of traditional Chinese products are on offer there, and strange Chinese snacks, rarely seen the rest of the year. The louder the three firecrackers, the better and luckier it’s believed it will be for business and farming in the coming year. These taboos usually apply up to a month before the festival and continue to the end of the festival (day 15, the Lantern Festival). A change in attitude to the festival has occurred especially among China’s younger generation. In the past people sent New Year cards or called each other to express their good wishes during the Spring Festival.

The first twelve animals across the fast flowing river would be the winners and they would each have a year of the horoscope named after them.
They had almost reached the other bank when the rat pushed the cat into the river leaving him to struggle in the water. Swimming across the river had been an enormous struggle for him against the strong currents.
He hopped across on some stepping stones and then found a floating log which carried him to the shore.
