Happy Chinese Year of the Dog 2018

The Chinese Zodiac is the classification scheme that assigns an animal to each year in a repeating twelve-year cycle. This year is the YEAR of the DOG. 

The first day of the New Year can normally fall on a new full moon between January 21st.  and February 20th. The Chinese New Year of the Rooster began on January 28, 2017 and the year of the Dog starts on February 16, 2018.
The Chinese New Year festivities last until the Lantern Festival, which is on the 15th day of the first calendar month of the New Year.
