Whatever your language, Happy New Year.
The lunar new year starts at the second new moon after the (northern hemisphere) Winter Solstice. Celebrated by people of Chinese origin the world over, each lunar year is attributed to a sign of the zodiac.
In the 12 year cycle of the Chinese astrological calendar, 2016 is a Year of the Monkey.
The Wu Xing (Five Elements) sign of the Monkey is Jin (metal), which indicates brilliance and perseverance. Chinese zodiac analysts say that people born in a year of the Monkey have business traits of intelligence, eloquence, adaptability, flexibility. Their personal traits are: brilliance, independence, honesty, cordiality and positivity. Monkeys are reputedly problem-solvers, strong leaders and highly sociable.
Throughout China and in Chinese communities around the globe, celebrations with dragons, sea-lions, lanterns and firecrackers will celebrate the new year. Many businesses close for extended periods, and many employees in the Greater China region take annual leave and visit families at ancestral homes.
In the Chinatowns of major cities across the world, there will be activities in which the whole family can watch or participate. For details of activities in Hong Kong or Sydney, visit: discoverhongkong.com or sydneychinesenewyear.com.
