Chinese New Year is one of the most important festivals of the year and celebrates the new lunar new year. The Chinese calendar is made up of a cycle of twelve years, each of them being named after an animal. Some people believe that those born in a particular will have some of the characteristics of that animal. 2022 is the year of the tiger and people born in a year of the Tiger are brave, competitive, unpredictable and confident.
Chinese New Year is a time when families get together to celebrate with food, red lanterns and decorations and fireworks. It’s a vibrant festival bursting with red and gold decorations.
