The Chinese New Year will be celebrated on February 16, 2018 and marks the beginning of a new lunar Year according to the traditional Chinese calendar.

Each year is represented by one of the 12 zodiac animals on the lunar Chinese calendar. 2018 is the Year of the Dog. Additionally, the 12 animals move through a cycle of the 5 Elements, this year represented by Earth. So, we have the year of the Earth Dog, a cycle that only occurs every 60 years. A traditional greeting for those born in the year of the Earth Dog is, “May you live to see two birthdays!” This would be wishing them a long life of 120 years. Gong Hey Fat Choy! (Congratulations and Prosperity in Mandarin)
