The 2018 Chinese New Year begins on Friday, February 16, and the festival will last to March 2nd, about 15 days in total. Chinese families gather together for a reunion dinner on New Year's Eve, and clean their houses to sweep away bad fortune on New Year's Day.
According to the Chinese 12-year animal zodiac cycle, the Chinese year beginning in 2018 is the year of the Dog., and those born in 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018 are also known as Dogs.
Wish you good luck in the Year of the Dog!

culture, your year of birth - and the animal this represents -
